  • Claiming dependents on taxes

    Would it hold up in court if a document is typed up by my own and getting it notarized by a bank? It's about claiming a my child on tax return. Is it fair that each parent claims one of two children on taxes. Even if father has ins. On the children and the mother has them mostly.?

    The determining factor is which person pays the majority of the support. And whether or not a court order gives deduction rights to one parent over the other.


    The IRS's site has information on the criteria they use to determine which of the parents is entitled to claim the children on their tax returns.

      The IRS goes by who the child spent the most nights with. If it is you, and for some reason (including court order) the other parent will be claiming that child, there is an IRS form for that. (I think it's 8832 but check at IRS.gov).

        There are certain criteria outlined by the IRS that need to be met, before claiming a child. If all are followed they can be claimed as you mentioned.
        Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

        I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

        Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

          If I was to remarry can the person I'm married to claim my one child from a previous marriage? Even tho I don't work? My ex at this time gets to claim both children cause I didn't have anyone to represent me when we got divorced I was not working at the time that's why he got both. But now I'm remarried and want to get one of the girls to claim on taxes cause my husband now is working and taking care of us all financially as much as my ex. but my ex is being stingy and not wanting to be fair and let me claim one. Could I take my ex back to court and be able to get to claim one? Or will it be a waist of money and time?

              Under the right circumstances it is possible. It must be done in accordance with IRS regulations. If the court order says he gets to claim them, you will need to have it amended also to avoid contempt charges.
