My daughter physically moved out the last weekend of Sept 10. I never had her pay rent or towards health insurance, as she was still on my plan that i paid for, meals were available for her but she mostly ate at boyfriends house or take-out foods; never asked for money towards household utitlities, etc, as she usually wasnt home anyways. She was at fault for a veh accident, put the amount due $1800 from repair shop on my credit card and I only had her pay the $1800 back, I paid the interest to try to help her out.
I kept her on my auto insurance, listed my name on her car title with her, kept her on my cellphone plan, but i had her pay her montly payments for them. I asked of her to help with chores around the house but I was lucky if she did something once a month for me.
She feels she was to claim herself because she stayed with her boyfriend most nights and wasnt hardly ever home. she physically moved out at the end of the 2010 year so i claimed her believing i was able to do so. what are the rules
on this? She says she made $10,000 in 2010 (she was born oct 1991 -not sure if you needed to know that) I asked her to make an appt with an acct for her and I to figure this out but she says she spoke to an accountant over the phone and was told I was completely in the wrong by claiming her & she has 2 suggestions for me. (i havent heard the suggestions yet) I can’t say if she really spoke to someone or not. Or if she really made $10,000 in 2010 or not.
Even though she and I did not have much of a relationship in her final year or so here living with me, I did not ask her to move out once she turned 18 and graduated from High School because she told us she was enlisting in the military instead of heading to college, and I didn’t want her stressed about being on her own until then. But this apparently fell through and she just worked at a part time job. Once things got to be too overwhelming here with me and her actions, that’s when I finally asked her to move out.
if i was incorrect by claiming her, i'll gladly give her what is owed to her. And how do we determine that?
