Question by QTIP: Should unmarried single parents be allowed to claim their kids on their taxes ?
I’m referring to people who have never married yet they keep having kids ! Seems unfair to me that a single responsible person hardly has any deductions yet parents who have never been married are allowed to get huge tax deductions for their illegitimate kids !

If they provide for the care of the children, then yes, they should claim them as dependents. However, if they are not married they cannot claim married – so only one of them gets to claim the children as dependents. We need to get rid of the IRS – Fairtax.org is the only salvation for the taxpayers in the US.
