Who gets to claim kids on taxes with 50/50 joint legal and physical custody?
My question is, can I claim that I took care of the kids more than fifty percent of the time on our taxes because he hasn't been paying child support for more than half the year?
I make less than him, but I can claim Head of Household and get that credit, as well as the Child Tax Credit. He makes enough that he can't claim the child tax credit anymore. And he's very pigheaded. It's more than likely going to come down to which of us can efile faster with the irs. But is there a legal precedent for this?
