can we claim our 19 year old daughter as a dependent on our 2011 taxes since she lived with us?
Asked by: dtba
She turned 19 in August 2011. She was not a student and earned maybe $ 1200 or less. She is not disabled just couldn’t find work last year.
Reading the tax info, it says they have to be UNDER age 19 (in 2011) unless they are a student or disabled to be claimed. We paid for everything the entire year.
So which is right? Please let me know. Also her father and i are filing “married filing jointly” if that matters. She now started a full time job in 2012….
Thank you ALL who have replied!!! That helps a lot! I guess I was reading the “child” law. So glad I asked before “submitting” our taxes :)))
