My SO just got back close to 7,300 from taxes this year. We have a son together and he claimed me and my oldest son to boost his tax return this year giving him that extra 1,000 dollars. I'm a stay at home mom we don't share any accounts. He rarely gives me money only enough for childcare 2 days a week (only like 2-3 hours each) his boy. He says "Hey I'm going to give you some money like 500 dollars." I say "ok" but I'm really thinking that's it? Your getting 7,300 and your giving me 500? and I let you claim me and my oldest son. I'm kinda upset about it I could have let my oldest son's dad claim him and he was going to split it down the middle. That would have been about 1,500-2,000. Anyway what do you gals think am I wrong for expecting more?
