You can claim a child, relative, friend, fiance (etc.) as a dependent on your 2018 taxes as long as they meet the following requirements:
When you add someone as a dependent, we'll ask a series of questions to make sure you can claim them.If you can claim him as a dependent, he will probably need to amend his return. If you are able to claim him , he will need to have checked the box that someone else can claim him on their tax return (giving him a reduced standard deduction). He may not have checked this box when he prepared his return. If he did not, you will need to have him amend his return before your can file yours. If this is the case, you can file an extension for your return and pay any balance due with the extension.
