To get a refund, you must have paid in more tax than you owe, or you must qualify for a refundable tax credit such as the earned income credit or the additional child tax credit. If you had no earned income than you will not qualify for any refund no matter how many children you have/claim.

We buy/sell stuff from home to make our money. I am also in the process of getting disability for my leg problems. We just have no proof of what we made and i guess not having to pay taxes on that money is a double edged sword.
