My question involves a child custody case from the State of: New York. My ex and I have 50-50 shared custody our 2 sons. In the agreement, we each claim one as our dependent for tax purposes. The older, who is my "dependent" used my address for in-state college tuition. I also deduct tuition on my taxes. We both currently live in New York.
My younger son is getting ready to apply to college for next fall. His mother is planning to move to Florida. Will he be considered a Florida resident for in-state tuition since he his her dependent for tax purposes? Or, can he use my New York address despite being her dependent for tax purposes?
We share residential custody 50-50, but have not made plans for when he goes away to college and she moves to Florida.
I am not asking how to change custody for college. He wants to go to a Florida school, but his mother might want him to go to SUNY using my address to claim in-state for tuition.
