Dependent claims on taxes?
Asked by: samserio
I am going to have a son soon and currently do not live with the mother. She lives with her parents who want to claim our child as a dependent on taxes. However, I wish to claim my child as a dependent as well, even though the mother does not work and the child will be living with her. I currently live with my mother who needs him as a dependent on her forms. Can I claim my son while I am working but not housing him even though I am the only working parent of the child? Thanks.
