Dependent turns 18.


Recommended Posts

My friend's daughter turned 18 in the middle of 2022.  Is it correct to say that she can be included as a dependent for the 2022 tax year and Ufile/CRA will recognise her birth date and adjust accordingly?  Or is there another section that needs to be filled in that explicitly tells Ufile that she was a dependent for only half of 2022?

Also, this is the first year that she has had her own income.  Under her name as a dependent Ufile asks if she needs to file a return.  Is it best to tell it 'yes' and send it with her mother's return or to tell it 'no' and create her own separate return?

Thanks for any advice.

hello, just wanting some clarifications on this answer. Same situation as described in the original question...son turned 18 in Aug 2023. Son lives with me so has same mailing address and I support him but he is not in school at the moment and has a part time job. Can i still include him as a dependent in my family ufile for 2023 tax reporting?

Hello,  my son was at  high school in 2023 so turned 18 and lived with me until July.  Then he moved to a different area to play high level sport.  Doing my taxes and not sure if he should be a dependant or not as he moved out half way through the year?
