For persons in households with someone who has already filed federal taxes for the current year (FILEDYN) or who plans to file taxes for the current year (FILEWILL), and who has indicated that they plan to claim at least one dependent on their Federal tax return (FILEDEPYN), FILEISDEP indicates whether the person is flagged as a dependent on a Federal tax return.
This question was asked as part of a series of questions about tax filing. Before being asked these questions, respondents were told it might be useful to have out some of their family's financial records, such as a copy of the family's tax forms or materials used to complete the tax form, such as yearend bank statements, financial summaries, pay stubs, W-2 forms, and the like.
