Tests To Be a Qualifying Child
:1. The child must be your son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them.2. The child must be (a) under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than you (or your spouse if filing
jointly), (b) under age 24 at the end of the year, a student, and younger than you (or your spouse if filing jointly), or (c) any age if permanently and totally disabled.3. The child must have lived with you for more than half of the year.4. The child must not have provided more than half of his or her own support for the year.5. The child must not be filing a joint return
for the year (unless that joint return is filed only to claim a refund of withheld income tax
tax paid)..If ALL these conditions are met - your child is a dependent.My main concern is related to the test#4. The child must not have provided more than half of his or her own support for the yearBut as far as this test satisfied - you are OK..I appreciate if you take a moment to rate
