About this course

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. We will also touch on head of household filing status in this training.

This course will cover the following topics:
• Define a qualifying child
• Define a qualifying relative
• Understand who can claim the kids in cases of divorce
• Understand the IRS’s "tiebreaker rules"
• Understand head of household filing status
