Illegal use of dependent in tax return
      03/14/11 01:02 PM

I'm in the process of getting divorced and just filed my tax return as head of household. It was rejected because my wife had used my only qualifying child as her dependent for her return. This she did without telling me and I believe should not have happened because she moved out of the house for over a year now, she has not contributed to support my son or our financial responsibilities. I tried to find out from her what she was planning to do as far as our tax return. She said to talk to her lawyer about it. This I did and never got an answer from either one. Now my return was rejected and can't use head of household to file, of course this meant I lost a lot of money. Isn't this illegal to do? her tax preparer is a friend of hers and she knew our situation but helped her to go that route, shouldn't she be also accountable for doing something illegal? if this has happened to anyone, what can be done about it? thanks
