    their children as dependents - and provide them insurance on their own coverage - until age 24. Much longer if they still provide more than half the person's support. No matter where the supported person lives or votes.

    Unless the kid is emancipated (a legal procedure) or orphaned, gets married and sets up a home supported primarily by his/her own income, they are still for tax purposes dependents of the person/people who provide the bulk of support.

    Federally. For NC state purposes, we'll see how this works out.
