My mother in law will be coming here soon from her home country. She is not going to be coming through the united nations, she is simply going to be here on a US Visa - based on a process my wife filed to get her here. Its an immigrant visa based on her daughter (my wife) filling out the form I-130 (petition for Alien Relative).
From my own tax purposes since she will be eating/drinking, living with us, as well as using our utilities. This means I am responsible for her. Should I expect to enter any of this information on my taxes (can I) or should I simply update the number of people I claim on my paycheck?
I already am claiming my wife and my kids and was wondering if it makes sense to up it by one or whether there may be some tax advantages for me?
My mother in law has the following visa type: IR5 - PARENT OF US CITIZEN
