I need some help..

i filed my taxes this year already, and gotten back my re-found. here is what i need help about..

i have two girls that i can clam, but this year it is my ex  husband turn to clam my oldest girl on his taxes. now i didn't clam her at all, but the tax lady put her on my taxes as a nondependent-not claiming child. she told me that i had to clam it that way because she lives with me. well i guess he tried to clam her as child living with him, and it kept kicking him off with red flags. so now he is pissed off at me for even putting her on my taxes at all. our divorce states that i can clam her one year and he clams her the next.. so did i do this wrong?? i shouldn't listen that the tax girl should i?

 he is trying to claim her for earned income credit. If your taxes state that she lives with you for more that 1/2 the year and you claimed eic on her he can't.. By irs, he can't get eic for her unless she lives with him half of the time and he makes more than you.

That's probably what he did wrong. He told them that she didn't live with him.

He can't claim her for EIC-because you claimed her for that. He can never claim her for that, because there is a lived with requirement. He can only claim her as a dependent as per your divorce agreement.

That is what the tax lady told me as well. I know that he is going to try to take me to court over it. Witch to me i think is stupied on his part. To go to court and tell the jouge that he lies on his irs taxes

Tea4Tas is right.

I don't know what he thinks he can take you to court for. He is the one trying to do his taxes incorrectly. The non-custodial parents claims the exemption for the child (gets the child tax credit) but is not supposed to say the child lives with them to claim eic. Doing so would be fraud, and he may be audited and have to pay it back.

If he is caught, he can be made to pay it back, and they will ban him from claiming the EIC for up to 10 years. Which screws him over if he remarries.
