Am I a Dependent

by Jerome Rosman
(Davenport, WA)

I am 23 years old, I live at home with my parents, I am not a student. My pre tax income for this last year was $20,385, my fed witholding was $2,236. I was not a full-time student at any period in this last year. My parents want to claim me as a dependent, but I want to claim myself as a dependent. It is my understanding that because I am over the age of 19, and I was not a full-time student at any time during the year, my parents cannot legally claim me as a dependent and that I can claim myself as a dependent on my return. Is this correct?

by Amir
(New York)

Here's the situation:

I filed a tax return (Individual tax return 1040) and I claimed my mother, who lives with me and qualifies, as a dependant.

Now..


When I attmepted to file a individual tax return form using XXXX, The return was rejected stating that my mother's social secuirty number had already been included in a return ( MY 1040 form)?

Now.

My question is:

Can I file a 1040 return for my mother if I have her claimed as a dependant on my tax return?

Sincerely,

Amir C.

Child Dependant Exemption

My son will be 20 this year. He has a part time job but still lives at home. Can I still use him as an exemption on my federal income tax form? If yes then what determines whether I can use him as an exemption or he claims himself on his tax return?

Dependant

My daughter is a full time college student, this is the last year I can claim her as a dependant on my tax return. She is thinking about getting married the last week of December. Will I be able to still claim her since I supported her for 11 months and 3 weeks? Or do I tell her to wait until after Jan 1st to marry?

Dependant Child

I have a brother who loves with me all in all I've paid 2650 of expenses for him and myself. He's gotten a total of 4200 for the year but only pays about 900 dollars for living expenses the rest I account for. He spends the rest of his money on leisurely items such as music phone and video games (being a teenager) would he qualify to be a depandant relative of mine. I don't want to claim him and get in trouble if im wrong.

Dependent

My adult son has lived with me for the past year due to being unemployeed. He had been self-employeed but lost his lawn care business in the economic downfall. He owes business taxes and a lien has been placed on the business (it is no longer in existance). If I claim him as a dependent on my taxes, does that make me responsible for his past due taxes? will they take what is due out of my refund? I was not on his business.
Thank you


Hello,

Thanks for the question.

If you claim someone on your taxes as a dependent who owes past due taxes, this would not make you liable for what they themselves owe. You should still be able to get your full refund.

My mom has lived with us for the last 3 years, I have never claimed her as a dependent but think I can and would like to amend my returns. We do not charge her anything to live here. We contribute to her food, but she does buy some of her own food. She does pay for her own medicine and her own fun. She has savings accounts but does not touch them. Thanks,

Dependent / Adult Daughter

My divorced daughter and her three children lived with us for 2010. Mu understanding is I can claim her as a dependent as long as she had less that $3650 in income.

Is this correct and under what circumstances can I claim the grandchildren?

Thank you.

Dependent Children

by Peggy Drzayich
(Eagle, Idaho)

I am a widow of three years. I am currently working three jobs--two of them are on a 1099 basis--the third is very minimal hours. I have a single, 25 year old son who has just moved back home to complete his graduate degree. He has been working and will continue to work part time. What would be the best way to handle our income tax? Can and should I claim him as a dependant? I want to do what would be the most beneficial for both of us. I also have a 22 year old son who is away at college who I still claim.

My 23 year-old daughter graduated from college in December 2008. She moved back in with my wife and me upon graduation until she found a job and moved out in August 2009. If I supported her for over 7 months in 2009 prior to her moving out and getting a job, can I claim her as a dependent on my 2009 tax return?

Hi,

Yes, as long as she made under $3,500 she can be claimed as your qualifying relative.

I cared for my 90 year old disabled mother while she lived with me in my home in 2010. She has SS income and a yearly pension income of $8300 for a total income of $22000 a year.
Can I claim my mother as a dependent if I paid over half of her support, or does the fact she has income over $3650 disqualify her as my dependent?

Dependents

by Captain
(Detroit, Michigan)

I have heard where people claim 8 dependents during the year, then claim their actual number of dependents at the end of the year ( say 2 dependents ). Is this legal? Can't they get into trouble doing this?

Thank you for your dependent question. It sounds like you are referring to the number of exemptions that people claim when filling out their form W4 for tax withholdings from their paychecks.

A person is allowed to claim more dependent exemptions on their W4 and then claim the correct amount on their tax return. The amount claimed on the W4 is simply an indicator of the amount of taxes they would like to have withheld from each paycheck.
