Can my relative file taxes with me as a dependant, since he has been supporting me for over a year, i have not been working but i have now aquired a social security number and EAD to start work. What paper work does he need to file the tax returns with me as his dependant, will this have any negative effect to him or to me in future when i file by myself. Please advise
