Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,You need to file your own return and report the income you had along with your son as dependent.
If your return rejects becuas eyu or your son have been claimed then you will have to mail the return. Send a statementadvising teh iRS of the simple facts (name of the othe rperson, address, and simpl;y stated circumstances).
There is a form you can file as well but I would suggest that you send the copy with the tax return. Use Form 14039
Yes, the food stamps and any other assistanc eyou received woud help prove the individual did not support you or your son.
Your positive rating is always thanks enough.If you could also participate in the very short survey that Just Answer will send you by e-mail I would appreciate that very much.I really enjoyed working with you – please feel free to request me again when you come back to ask another question.
Thanks for the prompt reply. I was never mailed my return form and was unemployed for almost the entire year but volunteering, attending school, looking for employment and the sole provider for my child. Perhaps the lack of income is why the form wasn't received? Should I still request a form and use for 14039 as well?
