I’m a citizen of USA. My monthly net income is about $1500. Every month, I send $500-$800 U.S Dollars to my father and his family(my step-sister and step-mom) who are in China. All the transactions are sent through my Bank of America checking account. They are not U.S citizens. In case like this, is it possible to claim them as my dependents?

Answer

They may be eligible under “Qualifying Relative,” and for this it is not necessary that they live with you. However, a dependent must be citizen or resident of the U.S.
