If 2 taxpayers use the same dependent on their tax return then the IRS will investigte as to which has the legal right. So by you filing your returns and claiming your dependents the IRS will require proof as to who the children lived with.

You would nrrd to send a letter to them. Please include the following information, if available:
The address is:
Internal Revenue Service Fresno, CA 93888
Basically you would need to send them a letter and let them know exactly what he is doing.
i just want him to stop because they live with me full time and he seems to think that money is owed to him because of chuld support
Most people that pay child support think that but that is an obligation to the children not a right to claim them for taxes
