    not enough information

    are these four dependents your children, are you married or head of household==the wife is NOT a dependent, she is a co taxpayer

    personal exemptions are $3900 each

    married filing jointly standard deduction is $12200, head of household $8700

    you will have no EIC, you do have the Child tax credit for your children in the household under 17 and then how much was withheld from your paychecks

    Assuming the following:

    (1) you are married and will file jointly

    (2) you and your spouse have 4 dependents (that would make 6 exemptions on your tax return)

    (3) that you have no other income

    (4) that you had no tax withheld

    (5) that you do not itemize

    (6) that your dependents (children) are over age 17 - therefore you are not eligible for the CTC (child tax credit)

    Using the 2012 tax information you would have the following:

    $57,000 income

    - 11,900 standard deduction


    $45,100 T/I

    -22,800 exemptions ($3,800x6)

    $22,300 taxable income

    the tax on $22,300 = $2,479 tax liability

    Note that your tax liability would be offset by whatever amount you had withheld through wages or that were made in estimated payments during the year.

    Note also that if your children are not yet 17 you may qualify for the CTC and thereby reduce your taxable income by as much as $1,000 per eligible dependent child.

    This year I'm paying about $2,000. I like to pay.

    The size or the refund is not the same for everyone, since you can choose the number of withholdings. How much you pay all year for taxes.

    Some dufuses out there like to get 5 or 10 grand as a refund. Not sure why they like to give the government an interest free loan all year.

    And could be correct all of your W-2 forms for the 2013 tax year TOTAL amount of FIT Box 2 to used as a TAX CREDIT on the correct line of 1040 FIT return during the 2014 tax filing season.

    Medicare and social security taxes would never be refunded to you during the tax filing season.

    Possible REFUND of some of the FIT Federal income tax amount that is in on the W-2 form in the Box 2 $$$ amount that will be used as a TAX CREDIT on the correct line of 1040 FIT return during the 2014 tax filing season for the 2013 tax year and the same thing would also apply to the other state and local tax amounts and the amounts will be in the correct boxes at the bottom of the W-2 form to used on the state income tax return and the other local income tax return during the tax filing season for that purpose.

    It depends upon how much you had withheld.

    A tax refund is just you getting your own money back.

    How much was withheld? Married? Own a home? Lots of unanswered questions.

    It depends on how much they have taken out. If they had too much taken out, they get back their overpayment.

    No they don't get EIC like lower income people do

    They might owe. No way to tell just on income and dependents.
