But since the mother owns the house, it could be diffcult to meet the "Support Test" needed to claim someone as a dependent (p. 24ff of IRS Publication 17), which requires that "you must provide more than half of a person's total support during the calendar year."Not necessarily. It depends on who's making the mortgage payments, paying the taxes and utilities, etc. While he couldn't deduct mortgage interest that he pays for her, he certainly could consider the payments in determining support.Phil Marti
