my sons dad.

he owes me back child support and of course the government takes anything he would get back and gives it to me  bbbuuuuuttttt he actually asked me i would let him claim my son on his income tax and he would give me anything he gets back in return. yeah right buddy!

does anyone here have a similar situation? or does anyone let their ex claim their kids on income tax for this purpos?

I let my ex claim my son, but he covers all his expenses pretty much so he deserves it in my opinion.

I claim my dd and the state sends me his tax refund.  We don't communicate.

If you get it anyway, what difference would it make?

 i see what your saying but i guess its just kind of my way of sticking it to him for barely paying the minimum child support, never offering to buy my son anything that is needed (because seriously, the cs only goes so far), and not even making an actual effort to keep any kind of schedule for visitation.

if the circumstances were different i would gladly do it but i feel like ots giving him a free pass and i dont trust him anyway. he could easily lie about the amount he gets back.

Bitterness isn't good, and I mean that genuinely. Logically, I'd think your son is better off without him being a huge part of his life. I personally wouldn't do it though, just because it seems irrelevant. The money is going to you regardless. I don't see how he could lie though, doesn't the state seize it before he ever gets it?

My ex asks every year if I will allow him to claim both instead of just one per the CO. I say no each time.

 yes the court does seize it. i am acting a little bitter, im fully aware of that, but either way im not giving him a free pass to help out of his jam

We traded off, but he paid his CS and bitched the entire time!

If he is behind on child support don't do it! We each claim one child, but he is very much involved in person and financially.
