Yeah, so, big e-mail from TurboTax, informing me that even though Jillian has lived with me since summer my ex-wife already claimed her for a deduction, and apparently the IRS doesn't allow a SOC to be split between two people for dependent purposes. So, the Feds and state rejected my return. I've gone from getting a refund to owing; there doesn't appear to be a way to get credit for the tuition I spent on her, either.
I spent two days collecting and organizing paperwork, only to find out all my fine tuning brought me just under the minimum deduction anyway, which means I could have used all those receipts and papers as toilet paper, for all the good they did me. Then I found out that I can have a dependent in my home for half the year and pay hundreds of dollars in tuition, but she's still not a dependent.
