my so claimed me and our son on his taxes. i didn't work most of the year because i was pregnant and no one would hire a pregnant girl. anyway. he got five thousand back and he got a 47 inch flat screen,xbox games,and a laptop. i want some money to buy our son some stuff? since i didn't work and it's not my money do you think i should ask for some money anyway?

  • He should be buying his son stuff, period! If he could claim you then the deduction he got was a price-tag on your head, so hell YES some of that money belongs to you.... unless we are back in the days of slavery!

  • It's both your money whether you worked or not. And he should care about his kid enough for you not to have to ask.

  • Yes. I don't work and my husband always consults with me about what we will use that money for. Last year he got parts to build a new computer with a portion of it and I was given an equal amount for whatever I wanted. The rest went in the bank.

  • You shouldn't have to ask. But since you do, yes you should, he should give you half, if not more. Next year, you claim your child.

  • Definitely. You are entitled to that money just as he is.
