Dependents & Exemptions
Question: If I claim my daughter who is a full-time college student as a dependent, can she claim her own personal exemption when she files her return?
If you can claim an exemption for your daughter as a dependent on your income tax return, she cannot claim her own personal exemption on her income tax return. Your daughter should check the box on her return indicating that someone else can claim her as a dependent.
