Original Fast Forward Academy test bank question:
Roy provides support for his children, his parents, his uncle, two cousins, and his girlfriend. There are three tests that Roy applies to determine which individuals he can claim as a dependency exemption. The test that does not apply is:
A. Citizen or Resident Test
B. Member of Household or Relationship Test
C. Disability Test
D. Joint Return Test
A taxpayer receives one exemption for each person claimed as a dependent. The dependent must be a qualifying child, or qualifying relative who meets the Household or Relationship Test. A dependent must be a citizen or a resident of the United States, Canada or Mexico, for some part of the year. A taxpayer cannot claim a dependency exemption for a married person who files a joint return with a spouse, unless the return is only a claim for refund.
