Form 8332- Release of Claim to Exemption for Child by Custodial Parent

I was never married to my daughters father and I am the custodial parent. I have never used this form before in the 8 years of claiming her when I did my taxes online. I made an appointment to file my taxes in office and need to know if they will require this form from me. I would assume not since I was never married to him but trying to make sure before I go into their office.

Re: Form 8332- Release of Claim to Exemption for Child by Custodial Parent

welcome to the community:

Form 8332 is used for the custodial parent to release the exemptions to the non custodial parent.  Since you are the custodial parent and claiming the children on your tax return, no 8332 would be required.
