My 23 year son full time student got a 29K W2, can I still claim as dependent?

My 23 year son full time student got a 29K W2, he passes the dependent test, can I still claim as dependent? If so, where should I enter his W2?

Yes, as long as he passes the support test. $29,000 is a lot of money for him to put towards his own support. This means that you have to dedicate as much exclusively to him. 

 

You do not enter his W-2 on your return. He has to file his own return. If he does actually qualify as a dependent, he will need to indicate this on his return.
