claiming skid on taxes first yr after awarded custody
Bm has never let dh claim sd on taxes. She's also never offered to split or alternate yrs. Dh was appointed as primary custodian through the court this year which was appealed and settled between he and bm to where bm maintains only secondary physical custody when she has sd.
Sd lived w us full time this yr and since in the court papers dh is still listed as primary physical custodian, he plans on claiming SD this yr for the first time. Bm will not sign the 8332 form and plans on claiming sd regardless. Can we just file first and let BM deal w the headache of trying to file after us and being denied? Do we send a copy of the custody order in with our tax stuff? We use h&r block.
