My 3 children get a $8 check each monthly from there father being disabled. We are divorced he pays child support. In the form it says I received 3500 for two of them and about 1500 or the other in worker comp offset. But I didn't and with my income and my husbands income we avg about 35000 to 40000 a year. Do I have to claim this as income when I didn't receive it. It would jump our income up 9000 at least. We have never received any money from workers comp. I always depend on my taxes to help through out the year now I'm worried I won't get as much back. If you could help me understand that would be great.As per my tax guy. You can't claim your child's SSI benefits on your taxes, simply because it's not your income. Even if your child is very young, the government has no age limits for tax and income liability. If your child is receiving SSI benefits, the government counts that as his income, not yours. You can't claim it as income, and you aren't responsible for paying any taxes on it.
