Question description

George has supported his step-daughter (Kate), her husband (Alex) and their 2-year-old child (Jason) since his wife died four years ago. He promised his wife that he would support Kate, her husband, and any children they might have until the daughter and son-in-law graduate from the out-of-state college they are attending. Neither Alex nor Kate earned over $500 during the tax year. In December of the current tax year, Kate gave birth to a second baby. Tragically, the child had severe medical complications and died within 48 hours of birth. George had an AGI for the year of $93,000 and sent Alex and Kate more than $30,000 to cover the cost of housing, tuition, food, medical expenses, and transportation.  Alex and Kate should graduate in the coming year.
