Q: As a stepfather, can I claim child relief for my stepchild?
A: If you are the only person responsible for the payment of living expenses of the child, you are eligible to claim full child relief. However, if the child’s natural father is also responsible for making payment of the living expenses, you are the only eligible to claim 50% of the child relief.
Wishing you plentiful tax savings!
