How much income tax will I get back if I made around $13,000?

Asked by: sventre 3205 views YA Discussion

Federal withheld-$ 1200
State withheld-$ 120
Single, no kids, no dependents.
Last year I made around $ 11,000 and was given back $ 1,000 state and federal together. I went online to turbotax and h&r block and it calculated I was going to receive $ 850 back in refund this year. So why is it way less than last years refund if I only made $ 2,000 more? If I left anything out please ask and please help me out. I just don’t want to get ripped off.

How others found here:

  • if i made 13000 how much tax
  • if i made 11000 how much tax
  • tax refund for earnings of 13000

    Last year you got $ 400 for the Making Work Pay credit – last year was the last year for that.

    Taxable income this year 13,000 – 9500 = 3500
    Tax = 350
    Refund = 1200 – 350 = 850

    If you were over 25 12/31/2011 and made under $ 13,650 you could be getting between $ 3 and $ 60+ – - depending on what “around” means, in the form of the EIC – Earned Income Credit. {since you have done the returns, look for it if your age is within range.)

    EDIT: I will guess you are under 25, based on Judy’s calculations. {Maybe next year!}
