Is there an age limit for claiming children as dependents?
As long as the child meets either of these requirements, he/she will be eligible for this program:
Qualifying Child Test – He/she must be below 19 years of age or be a student younger than 24 years.
Qualifying Relative Test – Age limit is waived if the child is “permanently and totally disabled.”
Aside from the two tests mentioned above, they will also have to undergo the dependent taxpayer test, citizen or resident test, and joint return test.
