Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
A child born to you qualifies as a dependant that has been living with you all year...even if they were born on New Year's Eve at 10:30 p.m
For 2010, a new baby also delivers a tax credit of up $1,000, even if the child was born late in the year. Unlike a deduction that reduces the amount of income the government gets to tax, a credit reduces your tax bill dollar-for-dollar.
You will be able to use the birth of your child for the EIC.
do you mean that shoud i indicte that the child has lived half of the year with me?
Yes, more than half the year, the child would be considered as been living with you for the whole year.
eve if the childis only 3months old?
Yes, if the child was born during the year, the child is considered to have lived with you for the entire year.
The time you were pregnant is considered.
can I ask another question?
very concise respond
Yes, please ask anything you want.
my husband has not file his income tax for 7 yrs , he gets cash only but he wants to file his income tax this year, he still get paid in cas.. since he has nt been file 7 yrs , that can bring him any problem when he file his income ta x for 2010?
im sorry my grammar in more prominent in spanish.
If he files with you, it could be a problem, as they will wonder why he did not file the previous years. However he should file, and if needed claim he did not have enough wages to have to file a tax return. You only have to file taxes if your wages are over a certXXXXX XXXXXmit.
Since your workweek, is m-s, and you did work over 40 hours for that week you are entitled to overtime.
Please ignore the last sentence.
