Can I claim my girlfriend seeing as I support her for everything she needs?

She doesnt work and I pay for the food, clothes, gas and maintenance on my vehicle, etc.

You may be able to claim your girlfriend as a Qualifying Relative dependent if:

  • You provided more than half of her support in 2016
  • She earned less than $4,050 in gross taxable income. (Social Security income generally doesn’t count here.)
  • She lives with you 365 days in the year or is related to you.
  • She isn’t a dependent on someone else’s tax return.
  • She isn’t filing a tax return with a spouse (married filing jointly).
  • She  is a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident

You can’t claim a dependent if you are a dependent on someone else’s taxes
