Intuit Alumni


If they are full-time students it's unlikely that they provide more than half of their own support for the year, especially if you're paying for their college expenses.  According to the IRS, support includes amounts spent to provide:

  • Food,
  • Lodging,
  • Clothing,
  • Education,
  • Medical and dental care,
  • Recreation,
  • Transportation, and
  • Similar necessities.

Additional information can be found in IRS Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information.
