If that's her only income, or almost all of it she doesn't need to file a tax return.
no, yes i do furnish 1/2 of her support , that is her only income.

No, you're not married?
Just say I am married or I am not married
what difference does that make she is my mother and she lives with me. I am not married

Plus you can claim her as a dependent
The irs told me that I couldn't claim her is there a special form I need?
No. No special form. You list her on page one.
Did they tell you why? You can't get to anyone intelligent at the IRS until you go up through about 3 supervisors.
They just say No. to everything if they don't know the answer; they don't even know what to ask you.
