I'm a Mom who's on disability & because I am I don't file an income tax. My parents are in a financial crunch & asked me if I would allow them to claim my daughter on their income tax so they'd get more back & be able to get back on their feet. At first I didn't have a problem with it but the more I thought about it I didn't feel comfortable about it at all. I don't want to jepordize the benefits my daughter & I both receive. My step-dad & my mom tried to reassure me that nothing would "happen" to either of us. But I still wasn't ok with it & when I told them I wasn't comfortable they accused my fiance' of being a jerk & saying that HE is just being a jerk & selfish. I mean it was BOTH of our decisions to not do something illegal & my parents just don't see it that way. It's now to the point that my fiance' is no longer welcome at their house for Christmas or ever. Am I wrong for not helping?Answer Question

I wouldn't do it. You will get caught. My sister had a friend who did this and is now paying it back through garnishment. You are on disability and you and your daughter need what little you get. You shouldn't feel guilty because there isn't anything to feel guilty about. Your mom is just PO'd and taking it out on the wrong person, your SO. So to answer your question, NO you are not wrong! Sorry to say this but shame on your mom for even considering that.

I think it was wrong of them to ask you to do something illegal and could jeopardize yours and your daughters financial security. Plan for Christmas at your home, if they want to see you and your child they can come there.
