1. How can I claim my child as a dependent?
To claim your child as your dependent, they must meet either the qualifying child test or the qualifying relative test. If your child meets the qualifying child test, they must be younger than you and either younger than nineteen years old or a “student” younger than twenty-four years old as of the end of the calendar year. There is no age limit if your child is “permanently and totally disabled” or meets the qualifying relative test. Additionally, you can only claim a person as a dependent if the following three tests are met: the dependent taxpayer test, the citizen or resident test, and the joint return test.

3. Can I amend my tax return electronically?
Yes, you can file Form 1040-X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, electronically with tax filing software to amend the tax year 2019 or later Forms 1040 and 1040-SR, as well as the tax year 2021 or later Forms 1040-NR. This streamlined electronic process provides convenience and efficiency for amending your tax return. However, if you prefer to submit a paper version of Form 1040-X, you still have that option. Simply follow the instructions for preparing and submitting the paper form.
4. What should I do if there are agency errors on my tax return?
If you believe there are agency errors on your tax return, it’s crucial to address them promptly. Contact an IRS customer service representative at 800-829-1040 to correct any errors.
