Question

My child makes more than $4,200 but lives at home. I pay all his expenses. Can I claim my child within the dependent rules?

Answer

As long as your child does not provide more than half of his own support, and meets all the other requirements to be a dependent, you may claim him, regardless of how much he makes.
