    DS will be attending USMMA in the fall. Other SA have written that as parents we will not be able to declare DS/DD as dependents. Is this the same for USMMA? Mids at USMMA do not get paid like other SA Mids/Cadets. Thanks for your input.

    No such notice from KP- still carrying mid as a dependent.

    All federal income tax rules still apply. You need to provide more than half their support in order to claim them as a dependent. As long as you meet this requirement, you can claim them as a dependent.
