Saint Joseph, MI asked in Tax Law for Michigan

Q: Who claimed me as a Dependent?

Would there be any way at all to find out who claimed me as a dependent? I only ask because this has prevented me from receiving the previous Stimulus Check, and the second one soon to come. I have suspicion it might be my mother, I asked, but she said no, but I wouldn't want to file for whatever it may be that I need to file for someone falsely claiming me as a dependent, and next thing I know my mother is being hauled away because it turned out to be her anyway. The only other person I suspect is an old friend who I was previously friends with and his money-hungry dad that likes to live on nothing but government benefits and other forms of free money but went our separate ways, but they would need my social security number to claim me, right?

A: It sounds like the first thing you should do is contact your mother to ask. Whomever claimed you would need your social security number.
