He claims 3 even though there's 4 of us. We like getting more back at the end of the year.

The more you claim the bigger his check, yes.

HOWEVER the more you claim the less your tax return will be and the more of a chance to OWE taxes come April 15th.

It depends on when you need the money, for us a big check in April is the way to go... for my parents they always claimed 10 and just paid their taxes come tax time.

We claim however many of us there are which is 3.  If i were working , i would be able to claim his as a dependant since he is medically retired or disabled.

I claim 0, husband claims 1.

we normally got about 300 back at the end of the year. Until we got our home now we get back much more because of our deductions

Your husband should only claim 5, if there are 5 of you.
