#1;ok.however,just for reference, an 8332 signed for future years can be revoked by signing a different part of the form. It has to be given to the non-custodial parent, but it can be pretty hard to prove that it wasn't . You can also use Form 8832 to revoke a dependency exemption that you had previously released.A revocation is not immediate; it goes into effect for the year after you provide the noncustodial parent with a copy of the revocation.
#2;your ne name is not required to file form 8332 for yur ex; in lieu of form 8332, the noncustodial parent may attach a written declaration conforming to the substance of form 8332. To meet the requirements of IRC ,this statement must include the Name of the dependent child.
Year(s) for which the claim to the exemption has been released.
Signature of the custodial parent confirming consent to release the tax exemption. Social Security number of the custodial parent. Date of the custodial parent’s signature. Name and Social Security number of the parent claiming the exemption.
