Question: How to file taxes without being married?
Me and my fiance had our daughter on July 16, 2010, we are not yet married and won't be by the time we file taxes in January or February. Anyways I worked in 2010 up until I had Sophia, he will have worked all year. My question is can we file together and claim her, or do I need to file separately because we aren't married and who would be the best one to claim her--him since he worked all year?! I'm really confused when it comes to this stuff and obviously would like the option that gets us the most money lol. Please help anyone that knows about this kind of stuff? Thanks in advance!
Answer: As you know by now, you can not file MFJ till you marry before Dec 31st, 2010. Now, if he earned more than you, he need the help by letting him claiming Sophia so he does not pay tax, or reduce his tax or getting some refund based on the earned income credit.
I suggest you and before doing any filing, to do a test by filing sophia with you as head of household and then make another filing as single. See what is the different.
Also, do test filing by putting Sophia with him and file as Head of household then prepare another filing for him as single. Compare what is the different and think about what to do.
You can not file together with him, BUT, you may file as a single and check box 6 of form 1040 If someone can claim you as dependent. All of this depending on the amount of your income. Check it out.
In this case only, the father of your child could claim both Sophia and you (you should check Box 6 when you file your Tax as single), this could push his refund higher. Try to do test of all these scenarios and decide what is good for both. Good luck
As far who is entitled to claim Sophia, either of you could as far both agreed to do so.

Question: im working 16 hours but want to take a second job,will it be worth it or will it get taken off in in tax?
im a single mum with 3 children i work 16 hours for min wage so am im not paying tax .i want to take a second job but i am wondering how it will affect my tax credits.will i be any better off working an extra 15 hours or will it just be taken off my tax credits
Answer: to be sure i would go on the tax credits website and do the 'what i will get' thingy so you have a rough idea of the difference, you don't need to put in all your personal info or sign up, you just put in hours of work, approx wages (base it on min wage at higher hours) kids ages etc and it will work it out
i think you get different rate of tax credits if working over 30 hours so it may well make a difference
but you may get caught up on the trap of working more , paying tax after your set amount for the year, and although your tax credits will change you may not receive much more money for the hours put in
ignore comments from the first reply, you have a job, and do contribute
consider if the time away from your family and home is worth the extra hours and will benefit everyone, your family come first
i am married and have 2 children we both work but still receive tax credits which is a weird set up as they tax my husband and i get it back , weird system our tax

Question: What should be the take home pay per month on an £18000 & £12000 salary for the tax code 502L + NI deductions?
5* to anyone who can give a breakdown of the pay aswell, thanks
Answer: Try the website below:
From what you've give, a £18k + £12k annual income (I assume that this is for one person with 2 jobs, totalling £30k?) would give you a monthly take home pay of £1,834.77 a month:
£2,500 gross, of which £418.33 tax free and £2,081.67 taxable.
£436.47 tax paid, £228.76 NI paid, totalling £665.23 total deductions.
