Can I claim my daughter as a dependent?

My daughter graduated from college in May, 2018. She found a job and made $30,000 in 2018. I supported her for the first 6 months of 2018 and paid her tuition and room and board. Can I claim her as a dependent?

For a child under 24 support test is all that matters and you need to discuss with your child.. The child could not have provided over half of their support from earned income.  She could have earned income that was not used for support...  so for example she deposited i, you paid all her rent.  You really have to prepare the support test worksheet.
