Tax Credit for Child Support

187 Signatures Goal: 250

A person paying child support does not get to claim the child as a dependent and the monies that are paid are treated just like your car payment (on your tax return). I feel that the parent paying the child support should also be able to claim the child as a dependent on their taxes as the monies that are paid support that child just like the custodial parents money does.

Sponsor

I am a non-custodial, loving parent that wants equitable treatment instead of being the object of the obvious bias against people who are paying child support. I do not feel people who do not pay child support should be able to get these benefits or any benefits. In fact I support the witholding of income tax refunds for people who do not pay child support.

Is there a cause you really care about? Start a free petition like this one and make a real difference.

    A man can pay almost all of the bills for a child and the mother still gets the tax credit? The person who pays for the kid should be able to claim something, after all, that is what the child tax credit was created for.
