NO not as a dependent on your 1040 federal income tax return.
You cannot find out who claimed you on their taxes. This would require the IRS to be telling you information on another taxpayer. I disagree, but I know that they will not… give you that information. What they will do is side with you if the person did not have a right to claim you and they will allow you to claim yourself and take you off the other persons return and make them pay back and refunds plus interest and penalties. The person had to have your name as it is on your social security card, your birthday, and your social security number. How many people have this information?
no, once you claim someone you cannot be claimed yourself

In the US, when another taxpayer is entitled to claim you as a dependent on their income tax return, you cannot take an exemption for yourself even if the other taxpayer does …not actually claim you as a dependent. Then Exemptions for Dependents Dependent not allowed a personal exemption. If you can claim an exemption for your dependent, the dependent cannot claim his or her own personal exemption on his or her own tax return. This is true even if you do not claim the dependent's exemption on your return or if the exemption will be reduced under the phaseout rule described under Phaseout of Exemptions, later.

I guess it depends;for instance, the traditional IRA is a retirement savings plan where contributions may be tax deductible and the values can grow tax deferred until withdraw…al at retirement.However, for 2010, the IRA contribution limit for any wage earner is $5,000 or the individual's taxable wages, whichever is less. A wage earner over the age of 50 can contribute an additional $1,000 into an IRA. In the case of R-IRA, Roth IRA contributions are not tax deductible by definition. The tax benefit from a Roth IRA is taken at retirement when distributions are tax-free.
If by "claim" you are referring to an exemption, the answer is no. Since your animals are pets, you may be able to deduct related moving expenses (assuming you moved during th…e year). If you have a service animal (eg seeing eye dog), some expenses may be deductible. If you have a working animal (ie an animal that generates income), the animal's expenses may be deducted as business expenses. Please consult an tax professional for more information.
Yes, you can claim state and local sales taxes on your return. But in order to do so you must itemize deductions and you must not claim state and local income taxes. You're al…lowed to claim either state and local income taxes or state and local sales taxes, but not both. If you do claim the sales tax deduction, you can either claim the amount you actually paid (based on receipts) or the amount given to you by the IRS's Sales Tax Deduction Calculator.
