Filing Taxes. Single Mother?

Asked by: covici 259 views YA Discussion

I am a single mother I worked 3 months. I’m wondering if I will get a tax return or if I even need to file. Also do I need to file if I receive child support? Do they tax that?

    Income is income. You need to file for both. You should get a W-2 from your employer.

    child support is not taxable and the one paying is not entitled to the child’s exemption unless the custodial parent signs the #8332 waiver to allow it
    not only do you want to file if income tax was withheld that you don’t owe, even a very small amount of earned income is eligible for the EIC, as well as the additional child credit

    You should file to get any taxes withheld back. You may even qualify for a tax credit too. The child support you receive from your ex is not taxable.
