Customer Question
when I shouldn't have....
I received a notice that I claimed my dependents for 2010, when I shouldn't have. However, my ex-husband has to be current on child support at the end of even years, or I am entitled to do so. I have information showing that he was in arrears and also did not have me sign form 8332 (as I did in for 2006 and 2008). Where do I send the information to prove I am entitled to claim them? I need an address.

Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
You need to send information to the address on the notice.

You need to provide copies of documents - do not send originals!
Child's birth certificate that indicates you as a parents and supporting documents that the child lived with you - schools or day care record, medical records, church record, an affidavit from neighbors, etc.
You do not need to provide information about child support and your divorce decree.
Let me know if you need any help.

Just in case - here are IRS offices in your state:

No, they do not want the information sent to the address on the letter. That is why I ask. Also, they have all the information. I am trying to prove my ex was not eligible because of his delinquent status. Therefore, I am sending that information from the child support office. Typically, it is is year to claim so I am trying to prove why he cannot, as we both have already received money for the three children.
Tax Professional: Lev, Tax Advisor replied 5 years ago

Under the IRS rules the custodial parent is the parent with whom the child lived for the greater part of the year. The other parent is the noncustodial parent.

The IRS will award dependency exemption to the custodial parent.

 

If the child is living with you - you are a custodial parent - and only you should proof that the child lived with you.
Let me know if you need any help.
