If you have more refund or credits available to you, and a "qualifying" child to claim...yes, of course.

No, only the parent who has physical custody of the child for more than 50% of the tax year can claim the child.


No. You can claim the child and take off child care costs, but single people pay a higher rate.


When you claim a child that is under 17 maybe. You may qualify for the Child Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax credit. Also if you pay for child care you may qualify for The Child and Dependant Care Credit.


You can claim the child for the year in which it is born.


No. If you are providing more than one half of the support for the child, you may be entitled to claim them on your tax return.


No, only one parent can claim a child as a dependent in any given tax year. Whoever the child stayed with more gets to claim them. In a 365-day tax year, the parent who had the child for at least 183 days get to claim them. If the child stayed with both parents exactly 50% of the time, whoever the child is staying with on tax day (April 18th in 2011) gets to claim them.


Two people can not claim the same child. It's as simple as that. If the judge ordered that he get to claim the child for that certain year. Then he gets to claim him for whatever deductions apply to him.

If the child lived with you for over 50% of the year (183 out of 365 days) then yes, you can claim the child as a dependent on your tax return, even if they don't live with you now.


If he has no taxable expenses in the child then he cant claim on tax.

yes if you claim ) they take more money out of your check then you'll get back any overpayment when you do your tax return


I can only assume you mean claiming the child on your taxes. If you pay child support on a child and claim that child on your taxes, you are committing tax fraud. You can only claim a child on your taxes if you are providing most of his support and that includes he has to be living with you for most of the tax year. How much a father pays does not necessarily relate to him claiming the child on his tax return. You need to review your court orders. They should address who gets to claim the child as a dependent for tax purposes. If not set forth in the order then check your state laws. Most states provide that the custodial parent gets to claim the child for all of the reasons set forth above.


According to the IRS, the only person who can claim a child as a dependent on a tax return is a relative (to include step parents, foster parents, etc) who provided custodial support for the child for more than 50% of the year. In other words, if the child lives with you for at least 183 out of 365 days during the tax year, you can claim him/her. If the child lived with you for 182 days or less, you cannot.


The child tax credit is available for families with children under the age of 17 and is worth $1000. In order to claim the tax credit the taxpayer must be able to claim the child as a dependent.


Since tax regulations can change, it's a good idea to talk to your tax specialist or preparer to find out how to claim a child tax credit on your tax return. If you're filing a paper return or an online return and filling it out on your own, you should find it clearly indicated. There will be a few criteria that you will have to meet in order to claim the credit.


If you claim one (1) dependent (yourself) on your W4 form you will get more money in your paycheck, and less will be withheld as part of tax withholding. Some people end up having to pay money to the Government at tax time because not enough was withheld during the year. Those people sometimes choose to claim zero (0) dependents on their W4 so that more money will be withheld during the year and they will have less to pay at tax time.


The Child Tax Credit is $1,000 for each of your dependent children that you are claiming that are 16 or younger. It doesn't have anything to do with gross income. This credit is nonrefundable, so it can only reduce your tax to zero. If your tax is less than this credit (see worksheet in IRS instructions), you will only claim enough of the credit to reduce your tax to zero & you may qualify for the Additional Child Tax Credit. The Additional Child Tax Credit is refundable (you can get money back if it's more than your taxes). It can be affected by your income. If the Child Tax Credit worksheet directs you to this credit, use IRS Form 8812 & instructions to see how much to claim. The total claimed on the line for Child Tax Credit & Additional Child Tax Credit cannot be more than $1,000 for each dependent child age 16 or younger. Yes, unemployment is part of gross income. However, it is not earned income.


How do you know how much money Mexicans get back on taxes? Is the question refer to Illegal Mexican workers? If so they are allowed to claim the additional child tax credit for each child.


When it come to parents who are in a co-parenting situation (each parent is given 50/50 custody), US tax laws states that the parent who has had the child the most days in that tax year has that right to claim the child on their taxes.
