Question: irs tax question..if i had a baby at the end of the year, does the 6 month rule apply for child tax credit &.?
can I file head of household? It says the child has to live with you for for then 6 months, he will only be 5 months old at the end of the year. I know Earned income credit allows you to claim him if he was born anytime before Dec 31st, does the same apply for filing head of household and child tax credit. I cant find this info on their website. thanks
Answer: If your child is born in the tax year, it counts for the whole year. Do not put 5 months, put 12 months (this is in the instructions).
You are qualified for EIC, HoH, child tax credit, Additional child tax credit, etc., as long as you meet the other qualifications.

Corner Gas – Tax Man – Part 1
Question: Will an impending audit affect my upcoming tax year?
I’m currently being audited by the IRS. I am in the process of an appeal for allowance of EIC, head of household, etc… I will be filing my upcoming year with the same child in January. If no decision has been made at that point, is it going to hold up my current refund?
Answer: If no determination has been made on your audit, it shouldn’t hold up the new refund. Unless your 90 day time limit expires and you haven’t proven to the IRS that you were entitle to EIC and HH the first time. If your 90 day time expires, you are considered to have lost the audit and then the new refund will certainly be fair game to pay back what you owe for not being HH or receiving EIC.

Question: Need advice on taxes?
Ok folks here my dilema, last year I claimed head of household because my parents no longer work(receive SSI) but this year my older sister wants to claim H of H and claim me, my brother and sister this year(done at H&R). Last year I made more, but this year she made more than me andmy sister and wants to claim all three of us. Can she do this this year or no? Has anybody done something similiar?
P.S. I didn’t get audited by the IRS if anybody is wondering, the guy their at H&R said that this is Ok’d by the IRS.
Answer: To be a dependent a person must be either a “qualifying child” or a “qualifying relative”.
Your sister can only claim you as a “qualifying child” if all of the following are true:
1) You are under age 19, or under 24 and a full-time student
2) You didn’t provide more than half of your own support
3) You lived with her for more than half of the year.
If she can’t claim you as a qualifying child, then she might be able to claim you as a qualifying relative if ALL of the following are true:
1) your gross income was less than $3300
2) she provided over half of your support for the year
If you are not a qualifying child or qualifying relative as defined above, then she can’t claim you. If you or your siblings meet these requirements, then she can claim you, and if at least one of you meets the requirements AND that person lived with her for more than half the year AND she paid more than half the cost of keeping up the home, then she could file as head of household.
If you or one of your siblings is 19 or older, not a full-time student, and made over $3300 gross income for the year, then she can’t claim that person.
By the way, last year if you provided more than half of your parents’ support, OR if you and some others did in total, you paid at least 10%, and you had a signed multiple support agreement from everyone else who paid at least 10% of their support, then you were allowed to claim them and claim head of household. If not, no matter what an H&R person said, you were not able to claim them legally. Getting audited, or getting deductions disallowed, can take a lot longer than a year for them to get to you, so if you were not allowed legally to claim them, you’re not off the hook just because they haven’t gotten you yet.
More Than 10 Ways to Get FOSS Past the Boss
Jan. 4 is here at last, and not a moment too soon! Good riddance to all the eggnog, the mingling and the jolliness. It’s time to settle back down to work once again, and for that, what better companion than FOSS? There’s certainly no better way to get things done — the only catch, of course, is that not everyone realizes that.
WWE After the Bell IRS pulls Kelly Kelly into a plan to audit Cryme Tyme
Question: Head of Household, Separated from husband in the Military, being audited?
am being audited by the IRS. My husband, whom I have been separated from for almost 4 years, claimed my child on his taxes. I receive money from him and there is no legal separation. His family is egging him on saying that because he is paying me money he has a right to claim my child. I’m ready to scream. Help!
We got married a few months after he enlisted. We have been married since O4. We separated in 2005. He has never claimed my son until he was financially desperate and his mother advised him that since he pays child support and we’re married that he could do so.
Answer: Here’s a problem. Where you separated when he entered the military? Deployment counts as temporarily being away from home.
If you aren’t divorced, aren’t legally separated and only began living apart after he deployed, you can only file as MFS and claim the child and win the tie-breaker only if you had the higher AGI.
If you claimed EIC, you have even bigger problems.
If, on the other hand, he wasn’t living with his child at the time he deployed/enlisted (and you can proof it), as custodial parent you win. Paying child support is a moral obligation.
Wales Looks to Eliminate General Town Tax
Town of Wales residents will be receiving a belated Christmas present next year, thanks in part to the Town Board’s desire to eliminate altogether the town’s general fund tax levy on property owners. The 2011 tentative budget released by Supervisor Rickey A. Venditti on Sept. 24 does away with the general fund property tax rate, set at 27.6 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation in 2010. It has …
