“Is there an age limit on claiming my child as a dependent?” To claim your child as a dependent your child must either qualify as a child test or qualified relative test. This is often where people get confused. A lot of times people turn around and say, “Well, I can’t claim my child over the age of 24.” No, they’re no longer a child. They are now considered by the government as a relative. I know it’s just terminology, but it doesn’t make a difference. If you are providing more than 50% of their support, and they are not making more than $12,000 a year then they are or can be possibly your dependent. If you need more help or if you need a separate appointment, go to drfriday.com.
