I'll get right to it.
I want to claim my girlfriends kids on my taxes, since I am the only one who makes any money. We haven't lived together in a year because the house
we used to rent was foreclosed on so we had to move, we were paying rent and the owner wasn't paying the bank. She lives in a family owned house rent
free, I send her roughly half of my income (witch is VERY LOW). Her ex - hubbie was claiming the kids but he died in June. I only made about 9,000
this year, due to losing a job and being on unemployment.
Now, I've been living off bare necessities for a while, I got my car stolen last year, and with my low income haven't been able to get another one,
I also live in a rural area so jobs are scarce, if I could legally claim her kids im pretty sure it would give me a big enough return to purchase a
vehicle, witch would in turn change my life around. I need a car to get to any type of a place of employment. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard
place and the outlook is pretty bleak. If I could just claim them, get a couple thousands dollars and get a cheap-0 car I would feel like I had won
the frickin lottery at this point.
Please, any input is much appreciated as I know pretty much nothing about taxes. I just wanna know if I can count on this money or if i shouldn't
bother getting my hopes up. Any info ive left out that you wanna know i will tell just ask, and again thanks for wasting a few minutes of your life
thinking about my problem.
