Just for the baby? His/her SS card (or just knowing the number works.)

If you had the baby in 12 you can put them on your taxes. Just their social security number.

I know a couple who actually had twins last year/this year! They still got it for the one kid!



(One was born at like 11:54 on the 31st and the other was born at 12:03 I think.)

We just did our taxed and didn't get a deduction for him. I have NO idea why. We only got a deduction for his older brother.

did it not give you an option to add a second dependent? You can do an amend on there.
