Can the Parent with Custody Move Away with the Child?

Who claims the child as a dependent for tax purposes?

In general, the custodial parent claims the child for tax purposes. If the court does not make any orders about the tax deduction, then the custodial parent automatically claims the child as a dependent for tax purposes. The IRS income tax rules say that the parent having custody for the greater portion of the calendar year receives the deduction.

A court, can, however, order that the non-custodial parent be allowed to claim the child for tax purposes.
