Okay...someone please answer this question for me. I have been given different answers everytime I ask (sdn not included). My parents still claim me as a dependent. (for financial reasons) Anyway...they moved from my amcas specified state of residency last year (2001) and filed taxes in both states. Because they claimed me on their taxes I have to be a resident in the state that they claim residency right?? Well...they claimed both tx and az. I claimed az residency and now I am hearing that it might not hold up because my parents have been in tx for over a year already. That's crap!! If I am not a resident of az then by the same reasoning I am not a resident of tx either. How will the schools look at this?? I already stated on my tx apps that I am not a resident. if I am denied az residence, can I go back and provide the paper work that disqualifies me and claim tx res? I have an az driver's license, registered to vote in az and lived there for 11 years before I moved away to school....HOW CAN I NOT BE A RESIDENT?????
