It won't affect your tax return or your refund. You don't report food stamps on your tax return.

What I'd love to know is how you feed a family of 4 on less than $650 a month these days! Well done! Seriously though, collecting food stamps has no affect on your tax returns at all. It's not income and isn't reported anywhere on your tax return.

Public assistance and food stamps are not taxable.

Food stamps are not reported on your tax returns and are not viewed as income. Food stamps do not expire, so any balance that you have will roll over to the next month. This is beneficial because if you go off of food stamps in six months, you might still have $1,000 left to spend. I would use what you need and save keep what's left each month for future use... this way you will be able to save and get back on your feet. You could still make a donation to a food bank, but I wouldn't spend whatever's left on your account each month - you may need it in the future.
