Dependent Calculator or DEPENDucator
Find out if a person qualifies as your Dependent on your tax return by answering just a few questions below. The tax deadline or tax day is in April, the eFile deadline is in October.
There are two types of Dependents:
- Qualifying Child: The tool below will provide answers
- Qualifying Relatives: See if you can claim other dependents
Dependents generally receive support, primarily financially, from someone who will claim them on their taxes for certain deductions and credits. This dependent tool or DEPENDucator will answer if you can claim a person as a qualifying dependent with your current tax year. The qualifying relative tool will answer if a relative can be dependent on your tax return. Find an overview of all child-related tax deductions and credits, and find out if your dependent needs to or should file a tax return.
When you prepare and eFile your Tax Return, the eFile tax app will apply and calculate all tax credits for you. In the meantime, use any of these 15 tax-year calculators to find answers to your tax questions or to calculate estimates. Check here for all previous tax years.
Once you know the results of the DEPENDucator, use the Tax Return Calculator and estimate your next tax return or simply start your tax return now.
