Can I claim my daughter without any income coming in?

If you have no income of any kind to report on a tax return there is no point in filing the return with or without claiming a dependent.  You would not be eligible for an child tax credits or EIC without any income.

Did she live with you the whole year?  If she lived with you and made less than 4,000 you can claim her and your child as dependents.
