Possible to claim for dependent unemployed adult?
My "child" is now 20 years old, unemployed/not in school for the last 2 1/2 years, and is completely supported by me, living here at home. ls there anywhere for me to claim this expense? This "child" is not disabled, just unemployed, and has no income at all. Thanks in advance.

RE: Possible to claim for dependent unemployed adult?
Hello,

You cannot claim an unemployed adult over 18 years of age as a dependent.

Please see the eligibility per the CRA site below:

You may be able to claim this amount if, at any time in the year, you met all of the following conditions at once:

You did not have a spouse or common-law partner or, if you did, you were not living with, supporting, or being supported by that person.
You supported a dependant in 2013.
You lived with the dependant (in most cases in Canada) in a home that you maintained. You cannot claim this amount for a person who was only visiting you.

In addition, at the time you met the above conditions, the dependant must also have been either:

your parent or grandparent by blood, marriage, common-law partnership, or adoption; or
your child, grandchild, brother, or sister, by blood, marriage, common-law partnership, or adoption and under 18 years of age or has an impairment in physical or mental functions.
