Customer Question

My daughter and her 6 year old son live in my house. She pays everything for herself and son; food,clothing,events,etc. She files taxes under 'Head of Household'. Can I file under 'Head of Household', claiming her son, my grandson, as my qualifying child too?

You would have to have a Qualifying person and you cannot use the same qualifying child as someone else.

Unfortunately you cannot claim your grandchild as your qualifying person.
