tuition transfer from dependent
Can you transfer the tuition fee that you paid for your niece? The niece fall under the definition of a 'child' for tax purposes.
1) live with taxpayer
2) taxpayer have full custody, and take care of her niece.
3) the natural parents of the child is not here.
I'm thinking it is allow, because the niece in this case, is your 'child'... but when I enter in profile, it doesn't transfer.
On the other hand, if taxpayer doesn't live with her niece, but still fall under the definition of a 'child', meaning have full custody of niece, then taxpayer cannot claim her niece as dependent. Am I right?
Thanks in advance.
