Instructions
What’s New
Exemption deduction suspended. The deduction for personal exemptions
is suspended for tax years 2018 through 2025 by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Although taxpayers can’t claim a deduction for exemptions, eligibility for the
exemption remains important for determining who may claim the credit for
other dependents, as well as other tax benefits. See the instructions and
Pub. 501 for details.
Purpose of Form
Use Form 2120 to:
• Identify each other eligible person (see below) who paid over 10% of the
support of your qualifying relative whom you are claiming as a dependent,
and
• Indicate that you have a signed statement from each other eligible person
waiving his or her right to claim that person as a dependent.
An eligible person is someone who could have claimed a person as a
dependent except that he or she didn’t pay over half of that person’s
support.
If there are more than four other eligible persons, attach a statement to
your return with the required information.
Note: The rules for multiple support agreements apply to claiming an
exemption for a qualifying relative and don't apply to claiming an exemption
for a qualifying child. For the definitions of “qualifying relative” and “qualifying
child,” see the instructions for your tax return and Pub. 501.
Claiming a Qualifying Relative
Generally, to claim a person as a qualifying relative, you must pay over half of
that person’s support. However, even if you didn’t meet this support test,
you may be able to claim him or her as a dependent if all five of the following
apply.
1. You and one or more other eligible person(s) (see above) together paid
over half of that person’s support.
2. You paid over 10% of the support.
3. No one alone paid over half of that person’s support.
4. The other dependency tests are met. See Step 4, Is Your Qualifying
Relative Your Dependent? in the Instructions for Form 1040.
5. Each other eligible person who paid over 10% of the support agrees
not to claim that person as a dependent by giving you a signed statement.
See Signed Statement on this page.
Note: To find out what is included in support, see Pub. 501.
Signed Statement
You must have received, from each other eligible person listed above, a
signed statement waiving his or her right to claim the person as a dependent
for the calendar year indicated on this form. The statement must include:
• The calendar year the waiver applies to,
• The name of your qualifying relative the eligible person helped to support,
and
• The eligible person’s name, address, and social security number.
Don’t file the signed statement with your return. But you must keep it for your
records and be prepared to furnish it and any other information necessary to
show that you qualify to claim the person as your dependent.
