    How can I get the most back? My divorce just became final in Decemeber of 2012. I have been paying child support since 11/2011. On my W4 I claim 0 and 0 deductions or independents, that way I get the most money taken from my check that way I don't owe, rather I get a refund at the end of the year.

    I cannot claim my son for the 2012 tax season She Devil gets to claim him. In the decree, She Devil gets to claim him on the EVEN years and I get to claim him on the ODD years.

    I also just started a P/T job (already work F/T) where I use my car (gas, miles and ins). Is there a way to claim any of this?


    One other question, do you guys perfer to take the most taxes out through out the year and receive a refund, or do you perfer to not take as much taxes out and end up owing at the end of the year? If I could I would rather end up owing, But I would want to owe less than $100. How would I go about doing that?

    You need an accountant, Dylan, not a credit card internet forum.

    Some of us really do know a lot about it, others not so much. Your best bet though is an accountant, because there is always a lot more to it than what you're saying. There are tons of forms, your W-2, or multiple if you have them, 1099 series forms, mortgage interest, any other deductions, etc. Way too much for us to sit here and Monday Night Quarterback your tax return. Just do yourself a favor and go to an accountant. You'll be glad you did.
