Can I claim my 19 year old son on my tax return for 2012?
Asked by: posadas
He graduated in May 2012 from High School. He did not take any post education courses after High School. He got a job and earned about $ 6,000. He is single and lived with me all year, and I paid over half of his support. What is confusing to me, is the word “Student”. Does he qualify as a student being in High School? Or is that referring to schooling outside of High School? My child was a US citizen. My wife an I file jointly and no one else can claim us as dependents.
