Hello eeb,

 

Anyone who would have otherwise qualified to be claimed as your dependent if they were still living may still be claimed as your dependent for the entire year, if their death occurred any time during the 2009 tax year.

 

If this was helpful please press the Accept button.

 

Thank you eeb
