Tax Year 2016: Hello, I'm not sure if i qualify for supporting myself in 2016?

I'm living at home, but my parents just pay for my housing and car insurance. I pay for school, food, clothing, medical expenses, etc.

You might have to total it all up to see. The following might help:

  • Food
  • Lodging (even if your mortgage is paid off)
  • Clothing
  • Education (including the GI bill)
  • Medical and dental care (including insurance and supplementary Medicare premiums)
  • Recreation
  • Transportation and similar necessities

Support does not include:

  • Life insurance premiums
  • Funeral expenses
  • Federal, state, or local income taxes or Social Security and Medicare taxes paid on a person's own income
  • Scholarship grants
  • Income made by a disabled person in a sheltered workshop
