Our current child custody agreements state I am to claim my daughter for federal and state tax purposes.
My ex provides me with two tax forms showing the difference in her taxes between claiming our child as a dependent and not claiming our child as a dependent. Then I am supposed to pay her the difference for the benefits she lost.
She claims her live-in boyfriend can claim her as a dependent, but since a dependent can't claim a dependent, would I still be required to pay her if her boyfriend claimed her?
Also, if she chooses to file joint taxes with her boyfriend am I required to pay the tax differences based on their combined income?
