Thanks for the clarification and answers.

Yes, we're talking about dependency for 2009. We provided support for her (tuition, housing, etc.) up til the middle of August (8 1/2 months). I assume we provided more than half her support, but I'll check Pub 501 to be sure. She is single at present (getting married in the summer), and we know we won't claim her for next year.

And, yes, we are in CA and she is now (as of August) in CO. She went to college in neither of these states, but I'm pretty sure that's irrelevant to all my questions.
