I have a question about the DissoMaster calculation for

Hi. I have a question about the DissoMaster calculation for CS/SS. We have 3 kids. Because I make a significantly more amount of money than she does, she is a teacher, she is required to contribute to a pension, etc., we agreed that I would always claim 2 kids and her 1. A CPA ran the numbers and said just her claiming 1 kid, she is still paying minimal taxes. If she claimed 2 kids, her tax savings wouldn't really be that significant. However, with me claiming 2 kids vs 1 kid, it is a HUGE tax difference.What is weird is, the Disso's Guideline calculation of # ***** exemptions I should put on my W4 is way off. If I followed that, I would end up $20k short in taxes each year. And she would end up getting a $5k refund. But, then there is the "Proposed, Tactic 9". When plugging in the # ***** exceptions it shows, it pretty much evens things out.For permanent CS, do judges allow the Tactic 9 calculation? The calculation is more realistic, considering, if we went by "Guideline" I would be paying more CS and $20k in more taxes each year. The "Guideline" calculation seems to artificially increase my monthly take home by a significant amount.

My husband and I divorced last year. In the divorce

My husband and I divorced last year. In the divorce agreement I let him claim my daughter as his dependant even though she lived with me all year. My question concerns head of household on taxes. My ex husband paid the mortgage and utilities on our home from Jan thru May while we were separated but he did not live with us. I paid for the food. I rented my own place after we sold our home and paid the rent, utilities and food from June thru December. I know with divorce I can claim head of household even though he takes the child credit and claims her as a dependant. I meet all the requirements for head of household but he is saying he does too. Does the rent and utilities he paid on our home count for him if he did not live in the house with our child. If he can what would be the deciding factor on who is head of household on taxes?

Not sure if this is a tax question or a family law question,

Not sure if this is a tax question or a family law question, but here goes....I have been divorced for 5 years now. I have a 19 year old daughter who is in college. she lived with me in 2014 but then moved in with her dad last year because I needed to find another home after the sale of the family home in early 2015.Although she is living with him, I have been paying most of her large expenses such as tuition, car and insurance. She works and pays for most of her personal expenses. He has provided a roof and that is probably it.Last year for my 2014 tax returns, I filed as head of household and I claimed her as my dependent.I am now filing my 2015 tax returns and know that I cannot file as head of household but was planning on claiming her as my dependent but I have since discovered that he filed first and has claimed her as HIS dependent.is this right? what can I co about this?Thanks
