My Nephew lived with me for about nine months in 2011 due to problems at home. I claimed him on my income tax as dependant and for EIC. I filed as Head of Household. I contacted IRS and they verified I could do this.
I filed my taxes and now I am being Audited for the EIC credit They are asking for proof that my Nephew lived with me. Other than a letter from my Landlord, I do not have any proof. He was not sick while with me. He did not attend school while with me, part of the problem at home was that he refused to go to school, so I have nothing from them. My nephew was seventeen at this time. What can I do? Irs says I qualify, but have to prove it.
