This year, filing season doesn't start until the end of January. The IRS says they are behind schedule because of the government shutdown and won't accept any tax returns until the end of January. The other family is not allowed to claim her. One of the requirements for claiming an unrelated person is living together all year, not just the last two weeks of the year. It doesn't matter who has the first, unless the second claim is filed electronically, in violation of the rules that the second claim must be filed on paper. If the second claim is filed on paper, like it must be, then it doesn't matter which claim was first and which was second.

Just have it correctly completed and ready to efile online to the IRS when they do start accepting the 2013 1040 FIT return on January 31 2014 during the 2014 tax filing season for the 2013 tax year. And then you do get your acknowledgment BACK from the IRS that they did ACCEPT into the system for the IRS to start processing it at that tine in your life. Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 12/29/2013

all sweet and good? there is NO way they can claim her, for one she did not live with them the ENTIRE year, 2nd she made more than $3900, 3rd and 4th, they did NOT provide more than 50% of her support AND she can be claimed on your tax return--- end of story! at 18 she is your dependent, her $4000 is not taxable to her, you do not claim it, it did not provide more than 50% of her support and obviously she lived in your household more than 6 months

Might as well file as soon as possible. If they file first and claim her, you'll have to file by mail - you'd eventually win after an IRS investigation, and get your refund, but it would take awhile so your refund would be delayed.
