Multiple Support Agreement

An agreement signed by two or more taxpayers who provide financial support for the same dependent. A multiple support agreement allows several persons who jointly support a single dependent to take turns claiming this person as a dependent on their tax returns. Multiple support agreements are used in such cases as when several children each contribute to the support of an aged parent.

The person who claims the dependent in a given year must submit a Form 2210 signed by all other parties to the agreement. This form gives the taxpayer permission to claim the dependent for that year. Each participant in a multiple support agreement must provide at least 10% of the dependent's support each year, and together the family members must provide more than 50% of the dependent's total support.
