I met a USNA mom the other day who mentioned that she still claims her yearling on her taxes. At USMA we received detailed information about determining if we could claim cadets during plebe year, and info on why we could not thereafter. I had just assumed all academies did this. She said, "I still support him, so I claim him." I was really too shocked to say anything, and I guess it's between her, God, and the IRS. So my question is: does USNA send info to parents about when/if they can continue to claim mids? I know, I know...MYOB...but I am just curious.
