How hard would it be to claim myself (a minor) on a family member's tax return who lives in another state? I live on the extreme western side of a state, where a well-known public university is less than an hour away from my home. I've always wanted to go to this university, considering my state's public university that is comparable to the one in the other state is over three and a half hours away. If I'm on their tax return, but I go to a school in my home state, will the admissions into the university still accept my residency?
The reason I'm trying to do this is because instate tuition is more than 3 times cheaper than out-of-state tuition, and I've felt more connected to this state, because the public university in my home state is more than three and a half hours away.
