Can I still claim myself if my parents declared me as an exemption through their work?
I don't know the specifics other than what I am stating, but my mother recently told me that I cannot claim myself this year even though I provided 100% of my living expenses (I'm away at college) for 2012, because any paperwork my dad filed with his employer declared me as an exemption (or a dependent) and that has to be followed through with the federal return. Is she assuming? Is any employer paperwork separate from federal? Can I still claim myself even if I've been presumed a dependent by my dads employer?
