I received workman's compensation for the entire year(2011) with no other income. I received 2 tax forms. A 100-G stating I earned $263 in interest(bank) and a Mortgage Interest Statement stating I paid $5673 in mortgage interest.
I know that interest income is taxable and mortgage interest is a write off. Do I have to file? If so would I be entitled to a refund for some/all mortgage interest?
I have been on Workers compensation for the better part of 2011, I worked a few weeks earning 1500, in 2011. I have a child. I have always recieved a large income tax check because I don't earn a lot and have a child.
I know that they took out something from my workers compensation checks(just not sure if it was toward taxes). What am I supposed to have form wise when I file my taxes( And where do I get them from)?
And, Will any of the workers compensation count? Should I expect that I will recieve a much smaller refund check?
