Well, the law says they have to be in school or home schooled on the 6th birthday. But my county bounced my DOI on my son when I included him with his older sister in our Sept-August declared school year the year he was turning 6 (in January) because "he wasn't 6". She said to file it the year he was 6 on Sept 1.
I filed for first child, DD, the year she was turning 6 (Sept-August school year, October birthday, declared age at filing the DOI "5") and it didn't bounce.
It doesn't really matter. I think most people wait until the September that their kids are 6. I would do it again on the Sept they were 5, if I had a third, just to let THEM bounce it. I don't want to be accused of not doing what I am supposed to be doing.
