You either qualify to claim your daughter for the year, or you do not qualify. A year isn't broken into parts, so the 6 months that she didn't work don't mean much.

Was your daughter a full-time student for 5 or more months during the year?

If not, did she make more than $4,050 for the whole year?

You cannot claim an adult child (assuming this is the case) as a dependent if he or she made $4,050 or more. It doesn't matter how many months she worked or didn't work for this income "test".

See Exemptions for Dependents

Did your daughter also claim herself when she filed?

Yes she was a full time student for 5 months so does this give me the right to claim her on my taxes?

Maybe. If she was a full time student, you have a better chance. Did she provide more than half of her own support for the year? Also, did she claim herself? If she did, you won't be able to efile your return and she'll need to amend hers.

Also, how old was she on 12/31/2016? Under 24?

And I'm assuming her job at McD's didn't provide more than half of her support?
