Can I claim my girlfriend & her daughter on my taxes if she receives ebt.

Receiving state aid does not prevent you from claiming them as dependents, IF they are eligible.

 

You may be able to claim her and her child as non-relative dependents if they meet all the Qualifying Relative rules.

To be a Qualifying Relative -

1. The person cannot be your qualifying child or the qualifying child of any other taxpayer. A child is not the qualifying child of any other taxpayer if the child's parent (or any other person for whom the child is defined as a qualifying child) is not required to file an income tax return or files an income tax return only to get a refund on income tax withheld.
2. The person either (a) must be related to you or (b) must live with you all year as a member of your household.
3. The person's gross income for the year must be less than $4,150 (social security does not count) in 2018
4. You must provide more than half of the person's total support for the year.
5. The person must be a U.S. citizen or a U.S., Canada, or Mexico resident for some part of the year.
6. The person must not file a joint return with their spouse.

However she must declare to the state aid department that she is being supported by you ... this may cut off or reduce the aid ... have her ask them.

She don't work & nobody claims them. The only thing we don't live together

If she and her child do not live in your home, then you cannot claim them as dependents since they are not related to you.
