Here is the deal in a nut shell. My sister is 16. She has lived with her grandmother since she was 3-since her dad got custody of her from my mom (long story)>but, for the past 13 years, she has lived with her grandma. My mom pays HIM child support-he gives the grandma nothing, he claims my sister as a dependent and gets a refund. The grandma won't confront him.
He is very smart, though. He is registered to the grandmas address. I have his real address. He claims disability and claims my sister as a dependent. My mom has tried telling the Child Support agency this-but since the grandma says that he lives there-that is where the investigation ends.
What can I do? I wrote a letter to the IRS about tax fraud. Should I send it? I am tired of my mom rolling over and taking it cause she is affraid of him. I need advice on where to turn.........

As much as that situation sucks, that is between the grandmother and him to sort out. I would focus more on convincing the grandmother to tell the truth about where he lives, rather than writing the IRS which likely will get you the same result...nothing.
