Re: Who can claim children for tax purposes...

Basically, the IRS says that for divorced parents, whoever had the kids for the most overnights during the year is the parent who can claim the children. If they spent more overnights with you, then he cannot claim them unless you release the exemption to him - which sounds like you will not be doing. If you had the most overnights, you can file and claim them even if he does too. If he e-files and gets them first, you just need to paper file (fill out the forms and snail-mail them in) and then you both will get notices from the IRS and you will just need to hash it out that way.
