Question
New Jersey Dependents Attending Colleges

Answer

You may claim an additional exemption for each dependent claimed on Line 9 or 10 if all the requirements below are satisfied. This exemption is not available to you or your spouse/civil union partner or your domestic partner.

Requirements

  • Student must be under age 22 on the last day of the tax year. (This means the student will not turn 22 until 2015 or later.)
  • Student must attend full-time. “Fulltime” is determined by the institution.
  • Student must spend at least some part of each of five calendar months of the tax year at school.
  • The educational institution must be an accredited college or postsecondary institution, maintain a regular faculty and curriculum, and have a body of
    students in attendance.
  • You must have paid one-half or more of the tuition and maintenance costs for the student. Financial aid received by the student is not calculated into
    your cost when totaling one-half of your dependent’s tuition and maintenance. However, the money earned by students in College Work Study
    Programs is income and is taken into account.


Enter the number of exemptions for your qualified dependents attending colleges in the box on Line 11.
