Whoop! This is like funny. OK who would claim you and your daughter except someone who supports you and your daughter. That can not be a lot of people.
However, if you were audited, you would want this done properly. If someone provided over half of your support, you lived with them all year, and you did not
earn more than 4050 they can claim you as a dependent, qualifying member of household. If you are a relative, you do not have to live with them all year. Your daughter might be someone else's dependent, qualifying child. A qualifying child may qualify for other tax credits, like the child tax credit. A qualifying child must m
meet five tests: residency, age, relationship, support, tie-breaker. A qualiftyin child must live with the tax payer for over 1/2 the year. A qualifying child can not provide more than half of his support Note a man can not claim his wife as a dependent. If a person gets divorced the child is the qualiftying child of the custodial parent. If your husband died, it is not a problem!, you still get an exemption for his on your tax return! A HUSBAND WHO DIVORCES A SPOUSE CAN NOT CLAIM HER AS A DEPENDENT! unless she died during the year He could kill her. I can see why you would no want to ask.
