Can you claim a dependency exemption for yourself on taxes?
No. You cannot claim yourself as a dependent on taxes. Dependency exemptions are applicable to your qualifying dependent children and qualifying dependent relatives only.
You can, however, claim a personal exemption for yourself on your return. Personal exemptions are for you and your spouse.
