I am 18 years old, have a job, and my parents are claiming me on their federal tax return. I paid some income tax when I filed, so do I qualify for the stimulus rebate?

Stimulus

No, because you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return you do not qualify for the stimulus rebate.
Note:
Although you may not qualify for the stimulus payment because you are claimed as a dependent on your parents' return, you are still able to claim your federal withholding listed in box 2 of Form W-2.
