Question
What is the self-exemption rule?

Answer

A taxpayer can take one exemption for themselves unless they can be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer. If someone else is claiming the taxpayer and the taxpayer has income to report, they still need to file a tax return. However, the taxpayer will not be able to claim themselves as an exemption.
