Problem Set #1 1. Lorna is a single taxpayer. Which of the following people can she claim as her dependents? (all are U.S. citizens, are not married, and have no dependents themselves) (a) Her sister Lisa who lives with her. Lisa works at Burger King but does not make enough to support herself. Lisa is 20 years old and is supported by rich uncle Harry. Lisa’s gross income is $2,000. Suppose Lisa were18 years old – would that change your answer? (b) Her brother Melvin who is 25 and lives down the street from Lorna. Melvin has no gross income. Lorna supports him. (c) Her cousin Felix who is 16 years old. Felix lives with Lorna and has no gross income. Lorna supports him. Suppose rich Uncle Harry supported Felix – would that change your answer? (d) Her niece Maxine who is a full-time student, 22 years old, and lives with Lorna. Maxine has gross income of $4,500. Maxine is supported by her boyfriend Ernesto, who lives in Spain and just sends Maxine money each month.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
