Our adult child under age 24 is a student, but doesn’t live with us during the school year. Can I claim my child as a student dependent?
It depends. The fact that your child lived away from you while in school won’t disqualify him or her from being a full time student dependent. As long as your child lives with you while not in school, you’ll meet the residency requirement. However, the child must be a full-time student to qualify. If your child meets all of the other requirements to be a dependent, you can claim your child.
