Money Amount

What is the less amount that I will receive on my tax return if I made 9,000 and I have a child? I live with someone so I will not be head of household.

Thank you for your Money Amount question.
The total amount of money you will receive on your 2011 tax return is dependent upon how much money you had withheld.

Without knowing that information, the least amount you will receive if you made 9,000 are filing as Single and have one child that you paid over half of the support for the year for, appears to be $3,969.00 calculated as follows:

Taxable Income 9,000
Less Single Filing Status (5,800)
Less 2 exemptions (7,400)
Equals No Taxable Income (4,200)

Earned Income Credit 3,069
Add'l Child Tax Credit 900
Total Refund $3,969
