    It depends on your situation. When claiming dependents on taxes, you can claim a qualifying child or qualifying relative if you meet the requirements.

    A qualifying child can be any of these:

    • Your child can include a son, daughter, stepchild, eligible foster child, adopted child, or a descendant of any of them
    • Your brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister or a descendant of any of them

    A qualifying relative can be any of these:

    • Your child, stepchild, eligible foster child, adopted child, or a descendant of any of them
    • Your brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister or a descendant of any of them
    • Your son-in-law, daughter-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law
    • Your father, mother, grandparent, or other direct ancestors, including stepparents (but not a foster parent)
    • Uncle or aunt
    • A person, including a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, great niece, great nephew or cousin who lived with you all year as a member of your household
