dependency requirement

October 13, 2016 • Anonymous • Log In to Post Comments

A taxpayer had been claiming her grandchild  (student away at school) as a dependent. Taxpayer died in July.  On her final return, can the grandchild still be claimed as a dependent?  


If the grandparent provided more than one half of the support for the year and met all the dependency tests, I don't know why not.
