Hello.

 

If he lived with you for more than 6 months during 2010 and he does not claim himself on a tax return and he cannot be claimed as a dependent on anyone else's tax return either, then you can claim him as a dependent on your federal and state tax returns for 2010. Here is a link to IRS Publication 501 which explains the rules for claiming persons as dependents on your federal tax return:
