Are you there?
Did you answer the question, I could not find it
If you paid more than half to support her and you have record of all the payments that you sent to her and can show that your mother did not have income ( greater than $3650) , yes you can
Since you are single you can claim the HOH
I have record of wire tranfers made ot both parents
that will be good, keep those records in case the IRS ask you for those records
(or actually my dad).. they live together. my dad had some unemployment income putting him greater than 3650, so he's not a dependtent for me
does that make my case more difficult ?
that he made 4000 from UI last year.. (they are not filing jointly so I can claim HOH)
Your father is going to file as Married filing separate?
yes he is, since he had 4,000 in income.
Your father can't claim your mother on his tax return
my mom can file but had 0 income to her name.. so I don't need to right ?
is that a question? he COULD if he wanted to but he's not so I cna claim her...
You can claim her as long as you provided more than half to support her financially
ok. i did. it just gets weird because to support her over there in her country its not that much. but i did send her money and it shoudl cover more than half her expenses
As long as you have all the records you will be fine
ok cool. i was worried about the records for her expenss since they are cash and usually small (groceries)etc... no big rent or utility expenses i can document
but i have bank staements showign wires from my account to hers so i will keep those
As long as you have the wires and you supported her with at least half of her financial needs you will be fine
thanks for the help!
