Dependent test under new tax code for exemptions

Recommended Posts

Under the new tax code, personal exemptions are eliminated for 2018.

Many health plans allow dependent coverage if the child qualifies as a dependent under a dependent exemption under the parent's tax return.  If the parents can no longer claim personal exemptions, can the Health Plan retain the same test for coverage of dependents? 

I think the IRC will retain the dependency tests even though there is no longer a dependent's exemption.  It may be relevant for credits such as Hope and tuition.
