She owns a house but will not sell it. My mother has lived with in our house for 3 years, 12 months/year. Her only income is her $675/month Social Security check. We pay for all of her food, housing, and clothing, She contributes $0/month to any of the expenses in our home. We also provide her transportation to/from doctors and entertainment. She owns her own home but is unable to live by herself for medical reasons and is unwilling to sell her house. She continues to pay the utilities and insurance premiums for her empty house.
Can my husband and I claim her as a dependent on our Federal Income tax even if she owns her own home but lives with us?
