i need some advice.
i am kind of at a crossroads. I am in need of more money on my check to help support my family. Right now i currently am married with 4 children. I qualify for the earned income credit for up to three of the children. Now my question is if i claimed the 4th child on my paycheck as a dependent how bad would it effect my end of the year tax refund? would i still get the earned income credit for three of the children while claiming the fouth child on my check as a dependent? my salary income is 35k and the wife is a stay at home mom. I hope someone can lead me in the right direction or shed some light on my questions. Also if it matters i live in ohio. Thanks again hopefully i made sense lol.
