    I do not believe so, I think I read somewhere that paying child support does not give the person paying the right to claim the child on there taxes and you can not claim the money paid out on your taxes either.

    The parent that has physical custody of the child is the one who has the right to claim your daughter.  If your daughter's mother wants to allow you to claim her than you can, but legally you can not claim your daughter unless you have a letter from the mother, and you send that in with your taxes.

    If you itemize your deductions, you can claim certain itemized deductions only.  Good luck!
