Full time student tax returns?
Asked by: jmlcpl
Hi I am a 20 year old full time student in college and would like to know which way I should file my taxes in order to get the maximum refund possible. Last year I files as dependent with my mother and I got back 1000 from what she received for claiming me. I have a part time job and have had one for two years the difference is last year I didn’t go to school. This year I want to know if I should file dependent still or independent. I get financial aid for school so I don’t know if that makes a difference or not. Last year they told me if I filed independent I would get 876 and with my mom she gave me 1000 should I go with the same procedure again and be her dependent ?
