Which dependents qualify?

A qualified dependent eligible to be claimed on an applicant’s food tax refund must be claimed as a dependent for personal exemption on the applicant’s federal tax return.  A qualified dependent may be a child, college student or adult; however, the dependent must be able to be claimed on the federal tax return for the tax year of the refund.

Note:  No person who may be claimed as a personal exemption on another resident's application for refund shall be entitled to a food tax refund individually.  A food tax refund may not be claimed on more than one (1) application for the same person.
