Beyond pissed right now UPDATE

Posted by   + Show Post
I got my W-2 from work today and was doing a test run to file my taxes to see if I would get a refund. I was excited to see I would get a $400 refund cause that could go towards clothes and stuff my kids need. I sent a text to my EX and told him I was claiming the kids. I got a text back from him saying he already claimed the kids and already sent his taxes in but he never told me. When I told him that he just screwed me he said if he didn't claim the kids he would owe thousands and wouldn't be able to afford to live or work and would be on the streets. I know he claimed them last year but I don't think he still has their SSN to claim them. Is last tax retturn that would have their SSN is on a different computer so I don't think he got it off of there. I'm beyond pissed cause he didn't say anything about claiming them just did it as is blaming me cause he claims so much on his check. What would you do?? We did live with him for 10 months out of the year if that makes a difference but he can't prove it.

Update: For those of you that assume I put my kids in daycare just for the hell of it is so far off. My kids ONLY went to daycare when I had a job interview or I was out handing out resumes other than that they were with me they go every where with me. Two yes I was and still on PA because I needed the help to feed my kids unless that's a crime to. The CS office and welfare knew about my living situation but DID NOT add my EX's income because I didn't buy food for him only me and the kids he bought his own food. His girlfriend DID NOT live there with us and ihe DID NOT leave me for another girl. I did tell him to claim the kids but I have this feeling that instead of changing how much he claims he's going to try to claim them again next year cause that's how vindictive he is. For those of you that seem to think I'm the problem how is it unless I contact him he won't see the kids. Infact he sent his son a text a couple days ago saying he MIGHT come over on Sunday but he didn't know yet. But I have yet to hear from him. He just assumes that I will drop everything for him to see the kids. He doesn't have a car so when he wants to see the kids I pick him up and let them hangout at my place. I have read my divorce decree and my custody agreement and it says nothing in there about who claims the kids when. I would get it changed but every time I change something with the case it gets screwed up. Like I sent in to have my CS direct deposited into my account that was a month ago. I haven't received my CS this week yet. When his other case from Nevada gets changed like an increase they take money away from my kids. At one point they took OVER $200 and I went into talk to them and was told there was nothing they could do.

But he had them at one point to file taxes he could have written them down. And for that matter when we get our taxes done we don't need to provide out kids Ssn the preparer has them on file from last year. Your making some pretty farfetched assumptions

Quoting jenking04:

He doesn't know the SSN I keep the cards in my wallet and he never uses the numbers




Quoting LittleBirdFly:

well I am sure as the father he knows the ssn numbers of his children. I know them all by heart. Other that that if he supported them for at least 6 months of the year he can claim them. So if you lived with him for 10 months that more that enough. And on top of that he has the proof that he claimed him the year before.

If he can prove they lived with him for 6+ months legally he can claim them. You should have worked out in your divorce when you both could claim the kids usually either mom does or you alternate years.

what do your divorce papers say?

File and claim the kids anyways. The IRS will see an issue, look at the papers, and you will then get the child tax credit for your children.

The X will have to pay the money back, or be looking at fraud

Not if he supported all of them for 10 months out of the year.  She has reportable income for only one month (Dec.), so can't prove she supported them herself.  They lived with him and he kept a roof over their heads for over half the filing year.  He has every right to claim them, and he should.

OK well that's different, but it would still matter what's in the divorce decree

She claims it isn't specified, which I find strange.  Mine was very specific about every other year, even though I had sole custody.

HE should claim them since they lived with him all that time, there is absolutelyno reason for you to.

 He probably didnt tell you because he knows how selfish you are and that you would try to steal his $ by claiming them. Good for him!
