DEAR ABBY: My daughter received her tax refund recently. It amounted to $8,700.

Jeanne Phillips 

Approximately $5,000 is for overpaying on taxes. Approximately $3,000 is the child tax credit she receives for her two children. Her boyfriend, the children’s father, thinks he’s entitled to some of her money.

Now, I understand the child tax credit is given for financial help for the children. My daughter and I agree that the $5,000 is hers exclusively as she is the one who paid those taxes.

As far as the child tax credit is concerned, her boyfriend thinks that he should be entitled to at least half of that because he’s the father.

We think because she is the one paying for the year’s health insurance, doctor copays, prescriptions and most of the diapers, wipes, pullups and other incidentals, it should all be hers.

Don’t get me wrong. Her boyfriend does contribute to the household and is a great guy. They split most of the bills. After five years, this is their first big disagreement.

He chooses to get money during the year, so of course he gets a lower tax refund at the end of the year.

FYI, she pays less for the baby supplies because she works at a well-known warehouse. He contributes when they are low by picking some up at the grocery store.

What advice do you have?

MONEY WOES IN THE EAST

DEAR MONEY WOES: Watch your daughter’s “great” boyfriend closely because his stance is troubling. Because he is the father (!) doesn’t mean he has a right to any portion of the child tax credit.

If he needs reimbursement for the items he picks up for his children at the grocery store, your daughter should repay him out of her salary, not by forking over half of her tax credit. That money is intended for the kids, not for any one parent.

If things aren’t clear enough, consider putting the tax credit money in a separate account.

DEAR ABBY: My brother “Frank” passed away last month. He didn’t have any underlying medical conditions, so it was a shock.

My problem is, when I was 9 and he was 14, he used to molest me while my mother was working.

For years, I never told anyone, but when I was 40, I told my mom and my older brother. Both of them believed me.

For the past five years, I had been there for Frank and his daughter, but I was always waiting for an apology from him that never came. Now it’s all I dwell on. How can I move past this and try to remember the good times?

PERPLEXED IN CALIFORNIA

DEAR PERPLEXED: Your religious adviser may be able to help you with that. However, if you are not religious, it may take some sessions with a licensed mental health professional.

Your niece, Frank’s daughter, should be asked if her father ever did anything that made her uncomfortable because, if he did, she may need professional help.

KATIE Price has taken her children Christmas tree shopping with her sister Sophie after making a brutal swipe at Carl Woods.

The former glamour model took to her social media to document her day out with her youngest kids to a Christmas tree farm.

Katie, 44, was joined by her younger sister Sophie, 32, and her dad Ray as well as her youngest kids Jett, nine, and Bunny, eight.

The proud mum took to Instagram to show off their day out, as she snapped pics alongside her kids and the Christmas trees.

"Christmas tree shopping with the kids, my sis and dad, I loved it," she penned alongside the photo reel.

One snap saw Katie, wrapped up warm in a pink arm print puffer coat, smile for the camera alongside Jett and Bunny at Sussex Trees.

She then snapped photos of her dad surrounded by trees, as well as Jett posing in a puffer coat and tracksuit bottoms.

Another snap saw the whole family together as sisters Katie and Sophie posed with their children - including Sophie's son Albert.

Katie also headed to her stories to show Jett playing with a young reindeer, as well as him smiling in a santa-themed photo cut-out.

It comes after Katie took a massive swipe at her ex Carl Woods as she headed out for a karaoke night with her friends.

The media persnality was snapped on social media taking to the stage to make a dig at her ex with the song 'Finally' by CeCe Peniston.

She started, presumably sarcastically, belting out the song in an apparent dig to her ex-fiancé as she celebrated her new single life.

Taking to the stage, she began to sing and dance, as she emphasised the lyrics: "Meeting Mr. Right, the man of my dreams, The one who shows me true love, or at least it seems."

Elsewhere, the reality star has been making the most of single life as she enjoyed a night out with pals Chloe Ferry and Yazmin Oukhellou.

While Carl Woods leaked a recording of them rowing over drugs.

The shock leak is the latest twist in Katie and Carl’s bitter split - after she confirmed in a late night video that she’s “single”.
