Asked over 4 years ago - Pensacola, FL
We live in Florida, have a 19 year old son that is not in school full time, living at home, we support him 100%. Can we claim him as a dependent on our taxes?

You are entitled to a personal exemption deduction for your son, as you provide more than 50% of his support.
You can review the first three chapters of Publication 17 to see if you meet all the requirements to claim your son as your dependent on your tax return. P17 is free at www.irs.gov .
