Is there an age limit on claiming my child as a dependent?
Age is a factor in the qualifying child test, but a qualifying relative can be any age.
As long as the following tests are met, you may claim a dependency exemption for your child:
- Qualifying child or qualifying relative test
- Dependent taxpayer test
- Citizenship or resident test
- Joint return test
