I think we got right around 1000 for each of our daughters, somewhere around that number

A child is a $1000 deduction, but how much of a return you get back depends on how much you paid in versus how much you shouyld have. So if you only paid in $500, but should've paid in $1000, you will only get back $500.

My first year I made over 10 grand and got 5500 back with one child.



Second year I made about 6 grand and with 2 kids I got 3500 back.



I did claim 0 at work so they took more taxes out weekly.

My question is who should claim the child. The mom or dad. I heard who ever made more money and ive heard the other way around. Or ive heard just the mom should claim them. I just had my son on 12/4 so this is all very confusing to me. Me and the father are together and live together so who ever claims him its going into the same account. so that doesnt matter to us.

I've heard 1000.00 per child but my mom just told me it's only 500.00 (she does taxes for a living).
