NO. The custodial parent has the right to file the child on his/her taxes. If anyone else files the child it is considered fraud. If you have joint physical custody either parent can file the child.

State and Federal tax agencies interact with all US state child support enforcement agencies. When a non custodial parent who is negligent in child support obligations files taxes the return will be "flagged." If the parent owes more than $500 to the custodial parent or legal guardian or more than $150 to the state's child support agency the refund will be seized and the filer will be notified of the action.
