For tax purposes, there are two types of dependents, 1) Qualifying child(ren), and 2) Qualifying relative. As your sister and husband will not qualify under the qualifying child category, they may qualify under the qualifying relative. Refer to the qualifications below to determine if your sister and her husbands meet the qualifying relative criteria.
What Are the Qualifying Relative Requirements?
An individual must meet all 4 of these requirements in order to be considered your Qualifying Relative.
