I have foodstamps and wouldn't need them if...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

They didn't take so much out of DH's check each week....We are a family of 5 and get 250 a month in food stamps, however I figured out last night if the IRS did not take out roughly 462.00 a month from DH's paycheck we would do just find and not need any help!!!

 Could you talk to his employer or HR about how much is taken out and do some adjustments? Sorry that stinks especially having 5 mouths to feed:(. Yikes.

Can you please link to that? I need to adjust mine but am scared, lol.

Quoting mom2ljh:

So adjust you exemptions so they take less. You'll just get a smaller refund at the end of the year. We adjusted DH's exemptions (The IRS has a calculator for this) and are keeping $175/month more of his pay. :-)

 Well yes, I thought that's what I put. I wouldn't think she'd need to talk to his employer. I meant him. Thanks for the correction.

Basic math ladies. She gets $250, they take close to $500. If they didn't take the $500, she wouldn't need the $250.



OP, you need to check his withholdings because you may have them set too high.

I'm not buying that at all. If you make enough to pay that much monthly, you aren't qualifying for aid.

I wish the government only took 462 out of my DH's monthly pay.
