Divorce can suck on so many different levels. One of the many difficult impacts are taxes and after a divorce is who claims the children as exemptions on their income tax return.

See Publication 504, Divorced or Separated Individuals, for more information. This rule requires in part, that both of the following conditions are met:

  • The noncustodial parent attaches the Form 8332 or the statement to his or her return.
If the custodial parent releases a claim to exemption for a child, the noncustodial parent may claim the child as a dependent and as a qualifying child for the child tax credit. However, generally, the noncustodial parent may not claim head of household filing status or the earned income credit, and the noncustodial parent may not claim
