Can I claim my grandson?
Asked Feb 3, 2007, 12:32 PM
My daughter had a baby this fall.. since he was born (and before that) I have paid the unsubsidised rent, utility bills, day care while my daughter worked for a short time and purchased most of his clothing,diapers etc.. So except for the state aid help, she does not get child suport.. I have paid most, if not all of his support. They do not live with me but I pay the bills. Would this qualify him as my dep?
Also, she does have 2 other childern who are claimed by their father.. she only has $1500 in earned income for the year. If the baby would qualify as my dep, would she still be able to claim EIC?
Thanks for any help
