Can my boyfriend claim me if I made less that $4000 this year but I did take out of my retirement fund, less than $200...do I have to file?

I'm confused because I need to know if I should also claim myself as well as my boyfriend I know that he paid for half of more than half of my expenses during the year but I did take out of my retirement fund and I want to check to see if I need to file this year or not

For your boyfriend:  IRS interview to help determine who can be claimed:

If your BF claims you, then you cannot claim your own exemption.  Instead you can file your own return and you have to say that you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return.  You will be getting a 1099R for the money you took from your retirement fund.  Go to  Federal> Wages and Income>Retirement Plans and Social Security>IRA  401 k) Pension Plan Withdrawals to enter your 1099R.

Yes I did, my only concern is the fact that I pulled from my retirement that I will also have to file when though I had income less that $2000 for the whole year

Did you pull $200 or $2,000 from the retirement fund? So what is your total 2017 income?  and which state?
