Can I claim my children as tax deductions?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Through 2017, the IRS allowed separated or divorced parents to determine which of them would claim their minor children as a tax deduction. However, income tax deductions for minor children have been eliminated as of 2018. Consequently, for tax years 2018 and beyond, minor children can no longer be claimed as a tax deduction by either parent.
