Why do I not get all my federal taxes back?!!!!?

Asked by: livingeditor 501 views YA Discussion

I am doing my taxes and I am a full time student so I was under the impression I get all my federal taxes back. I worked 3 jobs last year and 2 of the jobs I got the full amount of federal taxes it said on my w2 but on the third it said they took out 400+ dollars in federal taxes and I only got $ 108 back how does that work?! I am very mad about it.

How others found here:

    If you are someone’s dependent (most students are) then you would owe some taxes on anything you earned over $ 5800 in a year.

    When you work more than one part-time job, they don’t always take out enough taxes from each one. Did you claim zero exemptions on each W-4? If not, then that’s what you should have done.

    there is something not quite right about your question: all the income from all your w-2 forms is consolidated as is all the taxes that were withheld….how do you know you got evertyhing back on two and 108 dollars on the third….??

    i don’t know how you could know that.

    you didn’t submit a separate return for each w-2 did you?
