does he need to put her in his taxes even though ive had her all year and ive supported her myself ,we never married and i already claimed her in mines ... he claims he cant file an extension without putting her down
Family Law Attorneys are really not authorized to provide tax advice. My advice would be to contact the IRS. You can find their phone number at IRS.gov.
If I was you and I had already claimed your daughter on your tax return, you supported her and did not receive child support from him, I would probably let him figure it out with the IRS. But again, please give the IRS a call.
If you need more information, you should contact an experienced family law attorney.
Hope that helps!
