I am 18, living with my mom, who claimed my child on taxes. She does not support my child and I in anyway, except for putting a roof over our heads. I am a full-time student and have been unable to work this year. She told me that she is keeping all the money and plans on spending it on herself. I want my money because I was planning on getting an apartment with the father of my child, since he is the one who supports us. What would happen in I report her? Will I also get in trouble for allowing it? What are the consequences for us both?

If you feel you are the custodial parent, then you will claim the child.
You'll have to file on paper.
IRS will investigate and determine who is right and who is wrong. that could take a year,
