Daughter lived in her own house with her dependent mother till mother died on 4/1/2007. Qualifies as dependent as Qualifying relative(relative by blood, AGI less than $3400, presumably US citizen, resident, or resident of Canada or Mexico, over 50% of support paid by daughter.) Daughter must list mother as only resident in home 3 months as daughter did not qualify for Head of Household as that apparently requires the dependent to live in taxpayer-supported residence(special rule for parent) for over half of year.
