TAX RETURN, Question??
so my FH's papers say that everyother year him and BM claim ss on taxes. We live in NY. OK, BUT these papers also stated that 4 days he is with BM and 3 days he is with FH. For the past 3 years that i ve been with FH ss has been with us 99.9% of the time. so this year ( i know i have OCD and im planning a wedding) BM for 2011 gets to technically claim ss on her taxes. she also filed for bankruptcy and got canned from her folding clothes job.FUCK the papers, he has lived with us for the entire year of 2009, 2010 and 2011 and we legally can prove this. So, for peeps in this situation, considering the fact that the "joint custody" hasnt been followed since 2009, and no body wants to go to court, if we file for him first this year and so does she will the IRS just go based on what the court papers say ? or would they need proof of doctors bills, insurance claims stc. to show where the child actually resided that year???
