Missouri Residency Process

Hello. Has anyone here had past experience with staying over the summer and gaining in-state tuition? I know the basic rules about earning $2000, not leaving the state, showing proof of being in town with receipts, registering to vote, parents not claiming you on the prior year taxes, etc. But I was wondering if there were any hiccups along the way or things to be aware of. What problems did you encounter, if any?

    Whoa - you caught my attention with the "not claiming on PRIOR years taxes" comment. Our son starts this Fall - does that mean we shouldn't claim him on our April '15 filing for '14, or the April '16 filing for '15?

    We have a child there now and for the taxes we are doing this month, we can't claim her. So for you, that would be the ones you fill out next year.

    Sorry that was confusing. I meant that she hopes to get in-state tuition next year, but we don't claim her on this year's taxes even though it is her Sophomore year when she would hopefully be considered a Missouri resident.
