Q: I have a 22-year old unmarried child, he is working during weekday with a monthly salary of RM 1,200. He is attending a skill training programme in a college during weekends. Am I eligible to claim the RM 8,000 child relief?
A: If the total income of the child exceeds RM8,000 in a year, the parent is not eligible for child relief anymore. Also, if the child is 18 years old or above, and not studying full time, the parent is also not eligible for child relief.
Wishing you plentiful tax savings!
