TO FILE OR NOT TO FILE SEPARATELY?! TAXES 2013?
Asked by: sleff
my husband made only 30 k last year (To file this year). with 2 dependents (kids) were expecting 9500. thats with out my income. i know this because i put his info in and this is what turbotax tells me. i wont get my w2s til next week so… anyway… i think i made 14k because i only worked part of the year due to disability, which im trying to get on, still. anyway,. BUT my measly 14k brings our 9.5k refund WAY DOWN because they took only a couple hundred in taxes out of my check?! why??? i will never know but this is the situation, and it sucks.
what to do? legally? with the most money outcome, please
ps i am currently unemployed and we have an 8 and a 2 year old. the 8 yo has developmental disability. dont own home. etc.
ok, here is another DUMB question. my 1st wasnt so bad, but, since i think i made like 12-13, maybe 14k, do i have to file? i looked it up, if i did mine alone, id be getting money *(only 500$ , but still, not OWING!) back… however, my plus hubbys $ makes for a much lower return..
i did each of ours separately (guesstimating mine from my last paystub) and we each get money back. however, together, we get significantly less. so……? how is this right or fair?! wth??
