I have already filed my taxes with two children, 1 mine and 1 DH's. Now if you remember that my ex is out of work and will owe me on Friday more than $700. I told him-----if I claimed one of our other children this would make up the difference of what he owes.

If he says yes, If I have already filed and gotten my return deposited to my bank, can I amend and add another child?









Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Yes, you can file an amended return.

Make sure your agreement doesn't violate any agreements you have in writing.

Captain K! I am getting senile I think! I posted asking this a few weeks ago!

Oh dear, I need sleep or something. Thank you!

Yes you can file an amended return, but I would get dad's signature on this form 8332 from the IRS.

IRS form 8332 See part 2

If this is in lieu of child support in arrearage, you should also notify the CSEA so that he gets credit for it.

You will need to file a 1040X and be sure you run the numbers and confirm this and get the appropriate documentation from him.
