I am caring now for my 97 year old mother. She receives $1800 monthly in SS and pension but my rent/bills have gone up. Can I claim her?
In the past year she has been hospitalized 4 times, in rehab, loss of sight, hearing, mobility and on oxygen. She moved in with me 2 months ago and I have to now use some of her money to support us. My money does not cover all the expenses. Can I claim her as a dependent? She will be filing taxes on her behalf as well.
