Morning - I have a parent who is a US Citizen and his daughter is also a US Citizen. Taxpayer is divorced. She lives in Brazil and was born in 2004.
He supports his daughter 100% and she lives with her grandma in Brazil. Can the tax payer claim HoH?
Thanks - Sharpcougar.
Nope. Well, probably not.
Except for the parents of the taxpayer, the dependent needs to live with the taxpayer. The exception is if it is a "temporary absence", but the way you phrased things that does not sound like that applies.
