Group for users who have question about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
The guidelines for a qualifying child are generally easy to understand, but in some cases, for example in a divorce, custody rules for EITC can get be confusing – and oftentimes debatable between parents and caregivers. Ask questions and discuss the EITC with other in this group.
Did you need to file Form 8862, Information to Claim Earned Income Credit After Disallowance?
My wife and I split almost 2 years ago, however we are not legally separated. My question is we together have filed married for max refund and claiming our children as such. My ex and I spend most of or time together and when we’re not hanging the kids are usually with me. She is the “custodial parent” . my question is if we are working together is this a legit way to file or am I asking for trouble?
