This course covers claiming dependents - qualifying children and qualifying relatives. The rules have some overlap but there are significant differences between the two. A qualifying child opens the door for more tax benefits and credits than a qualifying relative.

Learning Objectives
  • Discover and define a qualifying child.
  • Identify and define a qualifying relative.
  • Recognize and understand who can claim the kids in cases of divorce.
  • Explore and understand the IRS’s "tiebreaker rules".
