Can I claim mom who passed away in February 2016? She lived with me and I supported her.

You may be able to claim your mother as a Qualifying Relative dependent even though she passed away in early 2016:

  • You provided more than half of her support in 2016
  • She earned less than $4,050 in gross taxable income. (Social Security income generally doesn’t count here.)
  •  She lives with you 365 days in the year or is related to you.
  •  She isn’t a dependent on someone else’s taxes.
  • She isn’t filing a tax return with a spouse (married filing jointly).
  • She  is a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident

You can’t claim a dependent if you are a dependent on someone else’s taxes
