My name is megan and im 21. I have a two year old son and a fiance. I was wondering if i should claim my fiance as well as my son on my taxes. He has made less than 3000 dollars this year and i barely worked this year. I worked more than him but not by much. It has just been a really bad year for us. We were living in alabama and there were no jobs available, we got out vehicle reposessed, my two year old's father hasnt paid child support yet (we are in the process of getting it now), and we got evicted. I was pregnant and was trapped in the situation that we could not afford to care for another child, so we were relocated out here through an adoption agency and placed him with a loving family on november 19, 2012. So my question is would it make much of a difference if i claimed him or would it be too much of a hassle to do that and not get much back...? He is also worried that if i do that then would it give him problems filing his own taxes next year. Please give me as much information about it as possible and maybe an estimate would he nice....thanks for taking the time to read.
