The only income DH and I had last year was $2,300 that I made, technically self-employed (I have a 1099-MISC). At one point, DH's parents talked about claiming him as a dependent, since he is young enough and didn't earn any income last year.
But...when I filled out my taxes with an e-file program and said that his parents were claiming him, it told me I owed $220, which is almost 10% of our teeny tiny income. When I changed it to say that he wasn't being claimed, it dropped our amount owed to $21.
I don't know if his parents have already done their taxes or what they did about claiming him - what will happen if we both claim him?
