If your parents do not live in your household, you might not be able to claim them as dependents. Bringing them money could be considered gifts, not support. You need to discuss the details of your situation with a tax specialist.
It may be possible to claim them as dependents but you should contact a tax accountant as soon as possible to determine if and how you may do so. If you would like a referral to one that handles this type of work please feel free to contact me and I can steer you in the right direction. Either way, good luck.
