22-year-old daugther who lives at home with her parents. She works full-time and made $29,059 last year. Should we claim her as a dependant?

Her parents cover housing and some food. She pays for her clothes, education, food, has medical and dental insurance through her workplace, pays for her transportation/car repairs, dog’s insurance/vet expenses.

Based on the information you have given us, you cannot take her as a dependent.

You cannot claim her as a qualifying child because she is 19 or over (unless she is full-time in college which I doubt), and you cannot claim her as a qualifying relative because her income is more than $4,050 per year.

Furthermore, it appears unlikely that you provided more than half her support.

Please review Table 3-1 on page 27 in IRS Publication 17. (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p17.pdf)
