I am a bona fida resident of a foreign country for more than 330 days of the year, so I understand that I am exempt. However, my young daughter spends 3 months each summer in California with her grandparents. Does she need to apply? Can she apply and pay for only 3 months?


Yes generally you have that right, she enrolls when she is here and takes exemptions when she isn’t. It’s a little complicated in this situation so look closely at exemptions and how that 330 day rule other other exemptions can apply.
