So we filed taxes about a week ago and i am a stay at home mom. I stopped working because i was having my third baby in 3 years. therefore it made mroe sense to stay home than pay for daycare or a nanny for all 3 kids with my entire paycheck. We filed jointly (i also signed-and it is going into a joint account). we are recieving $9, 800 back and his plan is to immediatley transfer all the money into his own accounts and give me $200 at most. I have no money and $35 in my checking which i just opened. I work hard with all 3 kids, involving them in anything that can help them developementally without costing anything. I am thrifty for the sake of my family and the fact that i have nothing to spend and dont have access to my husbands accounts. Is it fair that he keeps the rest and only gives me $200. His excuse is that its his money that he worked hard for and i should be happy i am getting $200.
as a side note; i have medical bills to pay in my name that he is not helping with....so i need the money to not create bad credit. I have never lived on my own, so he is assuming that i know nothing about how money works when in fact, i am more money savy than him.
