I was pregnant most of the current tax year. Is it still possible to claim the baby as a dependent when filing my tax return?
To claim a baby as a dependent, the baby must have been born alive during the current tax year.
If your child wasn’t born until the next year, you can’t claim the baby as a dependent, even though your pregnancy lasted most of the tax year. However, if your baby was born this year, claiming a newborn on taxes is possible even though the baby wasn’t alive most of the year.
