In the year of 2006 I accumalated child Support arrearage. I have been paying the ordered $10 a month monthly since going to court. According to our court papers I get to claim my daughter as a dependent for odd tax years. Since it's 2007 tax year I'm planning on claiming her. Whenever this change was ordered (before ex had her every year) I remember my ex saying that I can't claim her if I have child support arrearage. I'm wondering if there is truth to this?
I know that my tax refund will go to ex, so I don't see why it should matter if i claim my child like I'm allowed because it just equals my money payed to my arrearage. I just don't want to get in trouble for claiming her and then the ex claim her also and I be responsible for the payback.
I'm in Ky if filing for state.
