Can I take my adult disabled child as my dependent on my 2017 return?

You can claim your child as a dependent, regardless of age, as long as you meet all of the requirements. For example, you child can’t have gross income in 2017 of more than $4,050 and you must furnish more than half of his/her support. Note: For 2018 through 2025, there is no dependency exemption.

Deductions

Items directly reducing income. Personal deductions such as for mortgage interest, state and local taxes, and charitable contributions are allowed only if deductions are itemized on Schedule A, but deductions such as for alimony, capital losses, moving expenses to a new job location, business losses, student loan interest, and IRA and Keogh deductions are deducted from gross income even if itemized deductions are not claimed.
