Question
Good afternoon! I'm 31 years old, I have two children & my parents have afforded me the wonderful pleasure of being a stay-@-home/homeschooling mom. Since I don't work, nor attend school & can't claim my children, are my parents able to claim them? Can they claim me as one of their dependent too?

Thank you so much for your time!

Answer
Yes
yes.
the irs has good discussions of dependents on their website irs.gov

Basic premise is 50% support test.

More detailed when you get to child tax credits and such

19 years cpa. ms tax. NOTE: My discussions are only a general information and do not constitute tax advise without entering into a specific agreement and executing an engagement letter; This free chat is nothing more than general information and should not be construed as tax advice nor does my response or replies imply an agreement to provide client specific advice or other guidance for purposes of avoiding IRS tax or penalties and should not be relied upon without your own validation and confirmation of the how the discussion may fit your facts... Not having all the facts and/or not having a direct client relationship prevents me from providing the most accurate replies as possible and I highly suggest using a local CPA to provide you with written advice and guidance. Taking matters into your own hands is much akin to trying to land an airplane without a license. It is easy to FLY a plane, but LANDING is when critical experience is key. In short, caveat emptor; do your homework and don't just rely on free chat board advice anywhere, anytime.
