So, I’m laying there in bed, reading my book, and it hits me!
If I’m paying to feed, clothe, and provide health care to kids, why can’t I claim them on my tax return?
We’re paying millions of dollars each year to support someone else’s child, shouldn’t we be able to claim them as a tax deduction? Why can’t we get a tax credit? Just because they don’t all live under our roof? That’s not right! A guy pays a substantial amount in child support to his ex, and he can claim the kid on his return. Why can’t we claim at least a few thousand each on our returns?
Just wondering. And on that note, I’m going back to bed. 🙂
