    I read everything when I do my taxes, so I was familiar with this. I think it is a fair way to deal with the situation of kidnapped children. It is a real issue that the IRS has to deal with. It is also very important that the IRS notes the difference between the child being taken by a family member - which is a crazy high percentage of kidnappings.

    WTF! I declare! Would it kill them to have more compassion?

    Unbelievable!
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    It is awful that there is enough of a problem that the IRS has to do this. I don't think it is cold, how they have placed it,... I just think it is straight forward and an attempt to clear the clouds on how a parent/guardian deals with a kidnapped/missing child and filing out their taxes. Taxes are a legal matter we all have to deal with... at least the IRS has put in place these instructions to help families dealing with this type of issue.

    On a good note: Caylee Anthony cannot be used as a deduction by the Anthonys... at least that is how I see it, with the guidelines the IRS has laid out.

    If only all non-custodial parents were so greedy the FBI would have a much better chance of finding them!!

    Most kidnappers have to go underground or the child goes right back to the custodial parent. My guess is paying taxes is low on the list of priorities!!
    Thank you my WS family for everything you do, everyday. You are loved and appreciated.
