Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
If you want to give me your income for the year (type and amount of gross) and federal withholding, I can assist you.
Assuming this income is all taxable, and you claim your daughter,
If you file single, your approx. refund would be 2885 (but this does not take into consideration federal tax withholding, whatever was withheld for federal tax would be added to your refund. :)
If you file head of household with your daughter, refund would be 3135, with federal tax withheld added to this.
So the difference between single and head of household is approx. $300
Head of Household $4759
Hi Amanda, I am in NJ,
You can try an HR Block in your area, or you might want to actually try filing for free online (there are programs for this, specifically IRS FreeFile) or purchasing taxcut or turbotax software. Your situation is not too complicated at this time---but if you would rather have someone file for you, then I would recommend your closest HR Block office.
Best of Luck!
