She could qualify as your dependent.  Notice the last point below.  Dependents include qualifying children. To be a qualifying child -

  • they must not file a joint return with a spouse.
  • the child must be your son, daughter, parent, sibling, grandchildren, foster child, niece, nephew, etc.,
  • the child must be under the age of 19 (or 24 if a full time student for any part of 5 months during the year),
  • the child must not provide more than 1/2 of their own support, and
  • the child must live with you more than 1/2 of the year, including temporary absences such as being away for schooling.
  • The age limit is waived if your child is totally and permanently disabled on the last day of the year.
