What happens if both mother and father claim child on taxes?
Asked by: pmitchem
I am a single mother, my child’s father is in her life but he does not give me child support. Last year was the first time he gave me some money and it was about $ 300. Also we alternate claiming her on taxes but I’m going to tell him he can no longer do so. That I will be the only one claiming her. Well I know he won’t agree with that so what happens if we both claim on her on our taxes. Will there be a hearing? Or is it whoever claims her first? Her dad has a child so he won’t be losing out plus he doesnt pay me child support.
