I am the one paying the bills...not him!!!!!!!! Did you even read the post?
My mother is a tax attorney. You do not have to use the EIC to itemize!

Wow, what a peach! Good luck with that. Guess you can bring that up when you bring up the day camp.

I would love to be a fly on that courtroom wall when the demanding begins.

You might want to adopt a more positive attitude before you go before the judge because you will look like a vengeful bitter ex. I can only go by your postings here so excuse me if I am judging you incorrectly.

btw - Gr8Dad can be of great assistance if you know how to use honey instead of vinegar when eliciting help on an anonymous discussion board.

As ssmom said Good Luck.

You do what is right. If he gets caught committing fraud, that is on him.

You are right getting copies of the EOB before paying so you have proof of payment. That is exact advice that everyone here gives NCPs.

[quote]"He pays for them and he gets to use that as a deduction."

Unless he qualifies for the EIC, he cannot claim health care premiums. [/quote]

Tax law does not agree with you.

"why would I pay for 50% of the insurance premiums?"

Did you not create the children with him? Or, do you count yourself as only 10% of a parent and that's all you should pay?

Does that seem legit?

If your mother is a tax attorney why would you ask that question here? She should be able to give you more valid advice than some people on a message board.

When we were together, you said you'd die for me. Now, I think it's time you kept your promise.

[quote]I am mad, because if he continues to do this all year it will prevent me from reaching my 7.5% medical for a tax deduction. I can't deduct any of this if he uses his FSA. [/quote]

Untrue. What he does has zero impact on what YOU can do. If YOU pay the bills and YOU reach the 7.5%, then YOU CAN claim the expenses.

Eternity is too long to be wrong.
