Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good afternoon. Although your daughter would not be qualify as a "dependent child
" because she is over 24 years old, pursuant to IRS
Publication 501, page 11 (http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p501.pdf), your daughter could be claim as a dependent as a "qualifying relative." Under the IRS guidelines, she can be claimed as a qualifying relative if:
"1. The person cannot be your qualifying child
or the qualifying
child of any other taxpayer.
2. The person either (a) must be related to you in one of the
ways listed under Relatives who do not have to live with
you, or (b) must live with you all year as a member of your
household (and your relationship must not violate local law
3. The person's gross income
for the year must be less than
4. You must provide more than half of the person's total
support for the year."
