My son, who lives with me made $30,000.00 this year. He's 19, went to school full time until august but earned the money in the last 3 months. Can I claim him? Can I prove 50% support for the 9 months even though he made lots the last 3 months?

Be nice to him; maybe he can support you one day.

His income is not a bar to dependency since he was a full-time student (I assume) in at least 5 months of 2000. If you can answer "yes" to your second question, the answer to your first question is "yes." The support test relies on how much money was spent on support items, not on how much was earned.
