Hello and thank you for your time. My 17 year old who works and goes to school is living at her friend's house. I asked my daughter how much rent do I have to pay on my daughter's behalf? My daughter asked her friend's mother but she didn't want to charge any rent. I advised my daughter to at least help out with a bill, food, and toiletries. My daughter agreed and she helps as much as possible by purchasing things that she sees are needed and she helps clean the house. Nonetheless, I know that rent and/or mortgage payments are very high where my daughter lives. Since my daughter has been staying at her friend's house should I advise her to let her friend's mom claim my daughter on her taxes? Or should I advise my daughter to claim her own taxes? or Should I claim her? Thank you!
