    The question is, at what point are parents forced to stop claiming their kid on their income taxes. I always thought it was automatic, at 18, but maybe I'm wrong. Or, maybe this refers to SC's state tax code?
    This bill does nothing about that.

    It is punishing parents if their kid votes where they live. It does that to attempt to influence the outcome of elections.

    Are you sure the parents are being punished? You sure that they just can't claim the kid as a dependent on their taxes? That wouldn't exactly be, "punishment".

    Sorry, you are right, that was unclear.
    Don't let it happen again.

    You're talking to a college student here buddy. Young adults should vote at the residency where they are filed under taxes. Its not a difficult concept.

    Or maybe we are currently influencing the outcomes of elections by having college students like myself vote in areas where they aren't filed under taxes. And this bill would fix that.

    Currently the parent can claim them as a dependent. Under the bill, if the register to vote at a different residence from the parents, they cannot be claimed as a dependent.
