Can I claim my fiancé as a dependent if he made $16,000 in earned income for 2017?

No......you cannot.

In order to claim him as a dependent he would:

Have to have lived with you All of 2017

AND

He would have to have made less than $4050

There are other potential requirements too, but the $4050 limit prevents it entirely on it's own
