My mother doesn't work and I supply the income for my little sister. Am I allowed to claim her on my taxes to increase my refund amount? Thank you.
You can but she has to live with you, you have to pay for the majority of her support and she has to be 18 or younger or under 24 and in school.
As Attorney Lee states, she must live with you more than 50% of the year. You cannot claim her simply because you give your mother money.
