Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

Thank you for your question, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com. While the situation as you describe is that no tax will be due (if the only income you have is what you have stated), if you worked a job and had income you could qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit. You do mention working a job for a couple of months...

Per the IRS (CLICK HERE), To claim EITC on your tax return, you must meet allthe following rules:

You mention that you worked for 2.3 months during the year, but I do not see your income listed. Your refund will depend on how much you had withheld from your wages to pay taxes and how much of an earned income tax credit you are eligible for.

 

You can CLICK HERE for a calculator that will calculate your earned income tax credit.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks again for using JustAnswer.com and have a happy, and safe, 2013.

You should be aware that your question, as with most tax questions, can never really be answered completely...addressing all the permutations; that is because of the many assumptions that have to be made I have done my best to determine what I think you are asking and answering it in the most direct and understandable manner possible. If, however, after reviewing the questions, you have any uncertainties or further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
