I have my daughter, husband, and two grandchildren living with me. I provide all of their lodging, 90% of their food, 65% of their clothing. Am I able to claim them as dependents?=====>>UNLESS you file your return as married filing separately, you can NEVER claim your spouse as your dependent;however, it is possible that you can claim your daughter and your grandchildren as dependents(as your qualifying children on grandchildren but by claiming your daughter as your qualifying relative unless she is younger than 19 years old) on your tax return unless your grandchildren are claimed by their parents.ASLONGAS YOUR DAUGHTER IS supported by you then she can not claim her children as she is your dependent);aslongas their father claims them on his return, then you can not claim them, but since their father does not provide more than half of the persons’ total support for the year for the children, I guess the father can not claim them as his dependents so you can claim your daughter and grandchildren on your return.to claim your daughter and grandchildren on your return, their gross income for the year must be less than $3,950 for 2014.i mean your daughter’s gross income should be less than $3,950.
Do they get to claim their children on their taxes? Or is there another way to get a tax reduction for this situation?====>>as mentioned above;
