    No. SSI is a form of welfare. It is not taxed and does not entitle you to anything more.

    Your husband should check into HSS programs that pay family members for caring for disabled relatives. That income *is* taxable.

    Are you looking for a refund?

    If you tell us how much tax you paid and we can figure out how much you should get back.

    You paid $ 0, so that’s what you are entitled to get back.

    Sure you can, but you have NO obligation to do so and will receive no benefit
    You are receiving welfare, needs-based benefits, and it sounds like there is NO ONE with earned income in the family, therefore NOTHING to file
    You would have received none of the year-end statements, marked IMPORTANT TAX DOCUMENTS
    because you are receiving money, support, from the government, and the govt does not tax taxpayer money given to you and your family

    you don’t file taxes alone, if you are married you file married jointly, IF you have income to report
    SSI is not income, and what is it that the husband does, other than take care of you? if he earns any money at all it might be such that he needs to report his income on a joint return

    If that’s your only income, no need to file, as SSI is not taxed. You would not be eligible for any type of refund even if you did.

    Husband Wife and son under the age of 18 not other world wide income for this family of 3 living together with only the the wife receiving SSI benefit payments Supplemental Security Income
    Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes):
    It is designed to help aged, blind, and disabled people, who have little or no income; and It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter

    http://ssa.gov/ssi/

    And the SSI amounts would NOT be taxable income at all for the tax year.
    And you and your husband would NOT have any reason at all to fill out and file a federal income tax return for the tax year.
    BUT if you want to and choose to fill out a 1040 income tax return YES you and your Husband could do so Married filing joint filing status with 1 qualifying child dependent for the tax year.
    For 3 exemptions.
