My mom does not live with me but i help her financially.

Do you pay for over half of her support?    Did she have less than $4300 of income --not counting Social Security?

 

Better make sure you can claim her as a dependent because if you get it wrong she gets NO stimulus money--dependents cannot receive stimulus checks.   (And you do not get stimulus money for claiming her)

 

 

You might be able to get the $500 credit for other dependents if you can claim your mom.

You would need to pay over half of her total support, and she would not be able to have income over $4,300 per year.
