Can you claim a cousin on taxes?
Asked by: Long
Okay so my 2 kids and I stayed with my cousin on and off threw out the year. He took care of us I had no job. I have no taxes to file and neither does my kids father. His tax person said he can claim all 3 of us and head of household. Can he? If not is their a good chance he can get audited. Plus I never changed our address threw out the year since it would of been to much on me. His tax person also said he will be done and can claim us and can get money back for us. I just don’t know if she’s steering him in the wrong direction. what are the changes of getting audited? I know people that claim kids that are not theirs and never get in trouble.
Btw he is not blood related so does this change anything? My dad and his dad are brothers I’m not biologically his. As for proff never changed address but I never worked and there is obviously proff that he paid all the bills does that count?
