Who Is My Dependent?

Posted by rstapholz on
Who Is My Dependent?

Who to claim as a dependent on a tax return can range from being simple to very complicated. The IRS has tests that must be met for you to claim an individual as a dependent. For married parents claiming their children, it can be relatively simple. However, other situations, such as divorced parents, single parents, living with a grandparent, and other unusual circumstances can cloud who is eligible to claim a child. You must have the correct filing status. What do I do if the electronic filing is rejected because my dependent was claimed on another tax return? What tax credits can I claim for my dependents? Can I claim my child going to college? This episode will help to clear up the waters and answer these questions.

Twenty-five years ago Dan Millman wrote The Life You Were Born to Live. The original book described thirty-seven life paths, one of which will apply accurately to anyone born between 1750 and 1999. The revised and updated 25th Anniversary Edition covers all forty-five birth numbers (life paths), revealing a quick and accurate means to determine one’s own birth number (and corresponding life path) and the life paths of friends, loved ones, colleagues, parents, and acquaintances. It also covers the strengths and challenges of each life path in areas of health, money, and sexuality, as well as key spiritual laws to help anyone overcome the hurdles on their own path. Twenty years ago, Dan Millman was interviewed by Cynthia Brian about living on purpose. Cynthia Brian and Dan Millman will converse on the subject of his peaceful warrior philosophy of success.


How can a parent make sure a teen will be healthy at college? Planning in advance of any emergencies will ease the stress. Cynthia Brian offers simple sound advice for sending your child off to school!

College Pressures By Cynthia Brian


When it comes to thinking about college it is pressure cooker stress time! Whether you’re a high school senior getting ready to fill out those college apps, or whether you’ve still got some time on your hands, our hosts, Asya Gonzalez and Henna Hundal, along with our savvy reporters, Caiseen Kelley, Nicole Eubanks, and Caie Kelley guide you smoothly through the challenges. Techie Caiseen helps you navigate the juggling act with apps for your phone and computer. Health Beat reporter, Nicole, tackles stress and eases your frustrations with the information that there is something for everyone, so just chill. Veteran of the application madness, Caie Kelley, is on her way to Harvard this fall. She provides inside tips on how to just be your best self, write great essays, choose an appropriate school that fits who you are, consider the location, weather, courses taught, and, in the end, know that everything is going to turn out all right. Henna spent six weeks at the University of California at Davis this past summer living in the dorm while taking college classes so she feels prepared to leave the nest, although wonders if her parents are ready for the change. Asya’s dream college would be Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise in Los Angeles, but she lives in Colorado and wonders if she can juggle her company, Stinky Feet Gurlz, from California. Lots of food for thought with a talented group of young ladies on the verge of the next chapter in their young lives. Think College-Wise! And congratulations to everyone involved with Be the Star You Are!® 501 c3 charity. Today, September 9th, is our 15th Anniversary.
