Based on what you have told us, your 2010 federal income tax amount should have been roughly $5,700. Perhaps you are including state income tax in that number as well, or unemployment taxes?

A married couple making $50,000 with three children would not pay any income tax, and actually get about $1,000 from the government in 2010.
