Daughter is a college student and make $14000 last summer . I paid more than half of her college expenses. Can she be my dependent ?

It depends on her age at the end of 2016.

If your daughter is under 24 at the end of 2016 and a full-time student, you can claim her as a dependent if you provided more than half of his support, regardless of her income. You can also claim her education expenses if applicable (on form 1098-T). She will file his own tax return and indicate that she is being claimed as a dependent in the Personal Info section of TurboTax.

She qualifies as a full-time student if she has been enrolled at least half-time during at least 5 months or part-months in 2016.

If she is 24 or older, you cannot claim her as a dependent if he had gross income of more than $4,050 in 2016. She will file her own tax return and claim her education expenses if applicable.
