Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello JA Customer,
You may claim your daughter and her two children as dependents as long as the following all apply.
1. Your daughter did not have income of her own of more than$3,650 for the year. I would assume if her only income was from 4 weeks of unemployment benefits, her income would be below this amount.
2. You provided more than half of their total support.
3. Your grandchildren are not the qualifying children of another taxpayer -- basically meaning here that the father does not have the right to claim them.
If all of those rules can be met, then you can claim your daughter and both of your grandchildren as dependents.
