8332 form

My ex and I separated in Aug of 2018, and now share joint custody of our daughter. We agreed he will claim her for 2018 since he had more income for that year, do I need to file 8332 form?

Yes, if you are the custodial parent, meaning that your daughter lived with you for the most nights of the year, you'll need to sign Form 8332 and give it to your ex so that he can claim the dependent on his return. He would attach the Form 8332 to his return if he's filing by mail, and if he's e-filing he'll attach it to Form 8453. 

 

You don't have to send it in at all.

Thank you so much for your response! That really helps. Do I have to wait for his taxes to be received to file mine?

If I let my ex claim one of my sons but I already filed my taxes but did not claim him but his social is on my taxes what do I do?

You will need to amend your return to remove your son from your return since is social security number is tied to your return your ex will not be able to claim him. 

 

If you already filed your return you will need to wait to see if it was rejected or accepted. If they were rejected you are able to login to your return to fix what you need to fix and fix the errors that caused the rejection and refile the return. If your returns were accepted, then you will need to file an amended return. You should not try to amend your return until the original return it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or your payment has cleared.
Amended returns do not “catch up” to your original return and replace them; they are processed as two separate returns.  


Amended returns have to be printed and filed by mail.  It can take the IRS up to 12 weeks or longer to process them.   If you are due a larger refund than on your original return, your amended return should only show the difference and you will receive a separate check for it.  If you owe money on your amended return, it will show only the new amount owed, you will have to mail a check with the return.

 

You can check the status of your amended return by clicking here: https://www.irs.gov/filing/individuals/amended-returns-form-1040-x-/wheres-my-amended-return-1
