Who qualifies for the Qualifying Parent or Grandparent Exemption?

You may claim the Qualifying Parent or Grandparent Exemption if all of the following apply:
  • The parent or grandparent lived in your principal residence for all of 2014.
  • You paid more than one-half of the support and maintenance costs for the parent or grandparent during 2014.
  • The parent or grandparent was 65 years old or older during 2014.
  • The parent or grandparent required assistance with activities of daily living, like getting in and out of bed or chairs, walking around, going outdoors, using the toilet, bathing, shaving, brushing teeth, combing hair, dressing, medicating, or feeding.
Note: If a person who qualifies as your dependent is also a qualifying parent or grandparent, you may claim that person as a dependent or as a qualifying parent or grandparent. You may not claim the same person as both a dependent and a qualifying parent or grandparent.
