Agreed LukeH. They are complicated and I don't think any sailors that joined in 2013 would qualify for 2014's, but maybe Dad's just joining the group this year can think about it for their 2014 returns.
Darrell, Thanks, I'll look into that. I may just do what you did in reverse and have him cut me a check for the amount I would have received had I claimed him. Heck he's got more disposable income than I do at this point. HaHa.

Make sure you know the rules for claiming a dependent, as they are a little complicated. I would be surprised if any our sailors would qualify for 2014.

Comment by Darrell Brown on Friday

Barry, Actually both of you can file an amended return for this year. As all three of my children became independent but were still eligible to be counted as a dependent, I had them file as zero dependents, claimed them as a dependent and wrote them a check for the amount they would have received had they claimed them self.

It's a little late for me but maybe this will help future dads/families.  I tried to claim my son on my taxes since he lived with us most of the year but my sailor had already filed (for the first time) claiming himself without discussing it with me which really put the screws to my taxes.  So if you aren't going to or can't claim yours you may want to adjust your W-2's or at least make sure you're on the same page with you sailor before you file next year.

Talked to son last night - they were officially moved from MARF to S8G.  And now they are being told they will start proto on Monday, 4/14.  Even said their textbooks were assigned to them.  Looks like this might be an actual date this time! Anyone else in 1401S8G?

Congrats Bob.  My son was a SPU at Ballston Spa (S8G).  Instructor duty is no picnic...
