My father wants to claim my son for the last... 3 years.. On his taxes.. I am not sure if he never did file for the last 3.. or if he is planning to modify.. what he did file.
But he wants to do this.. here is my issue.
My father didn't support my son. I DID!
I rent the other half of my father's house from him. Social services pays him $300 a month. I also provide all the food I receive FOOD STAMPS... I talk care of purchasing atleast 85% of my son's clothes... the rest is made up from christmas gifts/birthday gifts.. and yes some small amount from grandpa...
But in general... IF MY SON NEEDS IT I PAY FOR IT.
I know there are all those bashers out there waiting to nail me for living on government assistance.. go ahead..
The question is this.. AM I JUST BEING A JERK? Should my dad have the right to claim My son.. as it would help him financially? The one thing I didn't say is this.. My father has provided a car for us to use for the past 2 years.. insurance included..
I know my dad helps with occasional babysitting.. etc.
I just don't want to get myself into trouble for allowing someone to claim my son..(which means he is claiming my son has lived in his care for the last 6-8 months) When the government.. Knows my son lives with me in an appartment they pay for.. eating the food they payed for.. etc.. you see my point?
