Shu-Ya Peng Tax Assignment 2 Explanation 1: Clark and Lois Kent can claim both May & Billy, Jr., as dependent because of the qualifying child test. They meet the relationship test because they are Lois’s children, they meet the Abode Test because they live with the Kent’s for more than 9 months a year. They meet the age test because they are7 and 10 years old, respectfully. They are not self supporting. Under the Tiebreaker rules, when both persons are the parents, and the child lives longer with one parent, the parent with the longer period of residence can claim exemption. Because the children live with the Kent’s for 9 month, while only live with Billy Batson for 3 month, Clark and Lois Kent get the exemptions. Explanation 2: Lucy Lane is a qualifying relative. She meets relationship test. She meets gross income test because her only income is social security benefit, which is lower than the first base of $25,000.
