My boyfriend whom lives with me would like to claim our 1 month old son in his taxes due to me being a stay at home mom. I suggested we split what he receives from our son in half with me so I can buy him things he needs rather than my boyfriend blowing it and me having to ask for this and that. Anyhow he doesn't want to agree to that all because im not the one working (Gee, wonder why.) In order for him to claim our son on his taxes do I have to sign a paper for him to do so?
Changing the category to tax. Unless someone has a legal relationship to the child, the child probably cannot be claimed as a dependent. Your bf should consult whoever prepares his taxes about claiming as a dependent. You also should file for child support from your bf so you don't have to ask for this and that.

He is allowed to claim his son that for whom he provides more than half his support. He does not need your permission. His tax refund is his and he can do what he likes with it.
