Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

Can I claim my grandma (85 years old and disabled) as a dependent on my 2018 tax return? If I claim her as a dependent, does that affect her Medi-cal eligibility?

I have never claimed her as a dependent in the past but I support and live with her in 2018.

You have to ask the Medi-Cal folks that.  But the fact that you support her could impact her benefits, whether you claim her or not.
