My mother has accumulated tax debts and this year we've supported her. We intend to claim her as a dependent on our tax return. However, we aren't sure if we can claim a dependent for a person that has tax debts? Do we become liable for those debts?


The BIDaWIZ Team's Answer:

You will not be responsible for the tax debts of your dependents. Joint liability for tax debts typically only occurs when spouses file joint tax returns.
