So you’ll be do your taxes and when the time comes they will audit and that’s when you end up keeping your money and she has to pay back

Did your mom provide shelter for you and your husband?

She had a reason and your not telling the whole story. She wouldn’t have done it without having something substantial to back it up knowing she could owe it back and be flagged. She filed first I’m guessing. If you really are owed the money and not her you’ll see them around August after all the red tape

Both returns will be pulled for audit. Your tax returns are now going to take quite some time. If she had them in her home for more than 6 months she can claim them though. Your best bet is to go see a tax professional!!

Your mom can’t unless they lived with her and she paid most all expenses.
They usually take first to file. Then you battle. My daughter has court order so boys father can’t use them for taxes.

Your mom has to amend her taxes…talk to your tax professional. Since she didnt support the child 51% of the time she will have to amend her taxes! She will get flagged in the system for the future. I went through this before it was annoying.

It will probably get flagged & investigated but it’s going to hold up your refund in the mean time

You bring it to there attention and she will have to pay it all back and fees and late charges she will have to prove that she has the right to claim them.
