Can you claim your girlfriend who lives with you as a dependent on income tax who works and pays part of the bills?
Yes You can claim her as a dependent if you meet all of the following criteria: 1. She had less than $3,400 in gross income for the year. 2. She lived in your home the… entire year. 3. You provided over half her support. 4. The relationship between the two of you does not violate local law.
\npeople that have more than 50% of your help like (income and living necessities). I think people that are not claiming themselves either.
So long as they live at home, their parents are providing over 1/2 of their support, and they are either. a. a full-time student under the age of 24, or. b. making less than… $3,500 (for 2008) per year
Yes, providing he or she meets all of the requirements for dependent, it does not matter that the relationship is "domestic partner." You may not specify "domestic partner" as… the relationship on the form (it's not a choice on the digital form), but instead use "other." Requirements for dependent status do change, but generally you must live together, your partner's income must not exceed the maximum, you must pay for more than half of your partner's living expenses and your partner may not be claimed as a dependent on anyone else's return. I believe that currently your partner must be a citizen of either the USA, Mexico or Canada.
2. You can claim more than 2, it depends how many actual dependents you have living in the household.. The term "dependent" means:. A qualifying child, or . A qualifying r…elative. .

Yes. If he or she meets all the other criteria for dependency, then the fact that you are domestic partners will not prevent you from claiming your dependent. Some requirement…s are: you must live together, you must provide at least half of the other person's living expenses, the dependent's income must not exceed the allowable amount, the dependent must not be claimed as a dependent on anyone else's taxes, etc.
