I’m a custodial parent and have a joint agreement with non-custodial parent of 1 child. We were ordered to alternate years when we claim dependent for taxes. For 5 years now, I have been claiming dependent, without letting the noncustodial parent claim, since the IRS recognizes me as the custodial parent. Since the dependent is with me year round, the IRS overrules the judges order and grant me the ability to claim dependent on a Federal level. Can I still be held in contempt by the judge, even though I have been claiming the dependent under the IRS tax law?
