I'm 28 and live with my parents, who provide more than half my support. Can they claim me on their return?
Your parents can't claim you as a dependent unless you're permanently and totally disabled. You aren't a qualifying child since you're older than 24. However, if you're permanently and totally disabled, you might qualify if you meet the other tests.
If you earn more than the personal exemption amount of $3,800 , you aren't a qualifying relative. If you're neither your parents' qualifying child nor a qualifying relative, they can't claim you as a dependent on their return.
