Can both my spouse and I claim our daughter on both tax returns in 2018 if we both worked in that year but different times?

No, a dependent can only be listed on one income tax return.  If you and your wife file separately, only one can claim your child as a dependent.

Thanks, & 1 more question; could we both put each other down on our taxes as dependants?
