<< We hosted a foreign exchange student from Aug 16, 1998 until May 25, 1999. Since the child lived with us for only 5 months in the tax year of 1999, I am unclear about whether or not I can claim a deduction? >>You cannot claim the child as a dependent. If the child was sponsored by a qualified organization, you can claim the expenses incurred in hosting him as a charitable contribution on Schedule A. See IRS Publication 526 for more information.Phil MartiTax Preparer
