Question

How many dependents can I claim?

Answer

Although there are limits to specific dependent credits, there’s no maximum number of dependent exemptions you can claim.

If a person meets the requirements for a qualifying child or relative, you can claim him or her as a dependent. You can do this as a single filer and regardless of your filing status.
