The parents meet most of the requirements to claim him under the Qualifying Relative rules but no mention of any income for the son. If the son earned $4050 or more they cannot claim him as a dependent.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
