I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but I'll try anyway.I am curious about being claimed as a dependent on my parent's taxes. I am going to be filing my own taxes in CA for the first time this year, but my parents live in MA. Can they claim me as a dependent still? I don't think so, but my mom thinks so because I've technically been living at home in MA for most of 1999 and until September when I changed my license over to CA, their home was my legal address. My current legal address is a CA one. Does living in MA for part of the year count, or am I completely cut off from them now since I changed my legal address? Another question - "they" say you can be claimed as a dependent until you are 24 if you are in school full-time. In the spring of '99 I was a full-time student, but when they file their taxes I will be a part-time student. Could they claim me as a dependent since I was full-time at one point in 1999? This is all so confusing. I hope someone can help me out here, or point me in the right direction. I've checked out all the IRS and CA state tax info pages, but they've been no help in answering these specific questions.thankshannah
