How long does a person have to maintain residency with you before you are entitled to claim that person as a qualifying dependent?
The residency test for a dependent looks at the amount of time a person lives with you in a single tax year. To be a qualifying child, the person must live with you for more than half the year. To be a qualifying relative, the person must live with you the entire year, unless you meet a certain relationship dependency test.
