  • Yes, and you get an extra $300 refund for him from the stimulus checks they mailed out last year! I was sooooo pleasantly surprised by that! So in addition of another deduction your little one just gave you $300 smackers! :-D

  • As far as I know you can claim as long as they are born before the 31st. I don't think you have to have a ssn for babies under a certain age but I could be wrong.

  • Yes u can claim him. It takes a few weeks.... the hospital sends a paper off. Im not surehow long has been a while. I know on nov 19, I applied for new cards and got 2 of them in 4 days. Its now end of jan and havent got my daugh... must got lost! I suggest maybe call them. If u have that paper from the hospital... it says U have applied .maybe call them the SS office and see if ure baby is in their system.

  • My friends son was born Dec 31, 2 yrs ago and they were able to claim him that year, so yes. As far as the SSN,s I'm not sure how they went about that.

  • My youngest was born Dec 31 2007 and we claimed her on our 2007 taxes. It didn't take that long to get her SSN. Be patient! It's worth it =)
