Your ex is a tax cheat…with your child
Question of the Day:
You’re divorced and your ex is a tax cheat claiming your child on their tax returns, but you have primary custody. You offer several options: Cease to claim the child; share the refund by claiming the child on alternate years, or; you get the refund and pay yearly incidentals. Your ex doesn’t accept any of these alternatives, and is adamant that he or she will claim the child since they pay child support. How would you handle this?
