The Question Club
I know this is last minute since uh, taxes have to be out tomorrow, but! If my parents pay for full-time college courses for me, but I basically support myself (rent, food, car) otherwise, is my mom allowed to claim me? She kind of surprised me by ~claiming me for school, and I ended up getting dicked over and owing money, and I don't think that's fair since I lived on my own Feb-Nov, and even though my boy and I moved in with her (to save her money), we pay for rent, food, utilities, etc. Some sites say yes until your child is 24 (I'm 20 btw), and some sites say no if your child supports themselves.|
TLDR: If my parents pay for full-time college courses for me, but I support myself, can they claim me?
eta: My mom already filed, and surprised me by claiming me. I just want to know if she's really... supposed/allowed to so or she just screwed me. :\
Iffff you don't know/don't care: Will you share what dream you had last night? Because I definitely had a dream about TQC where I posted without a question and got flamed to shit. Weird.
