Dependent on Homestead Credit Refund

My boyfriend and his child live in my home. Do I count his income on my M1PR form? Also, if he is claiming her as a dependent do I mark her as a dependent on my M1PR even though I didn't claim her as a dependent on my taxes?

Dependent on Homestead Credit Refund

You would not consider anyone a dependent for the purposes of the Homestead Credit who is not already a dependent on your return. 

If you had someone other than your spouse living with you, only you can apply for the refund. Use the income of any other person living with you, except boarders, renters, your dependents, your parents, or your spouse’s parents.
