I live with my girlfriend and her daughter, whom I take care of financially. We are not married. Can I claim Head of Household?

I consider her daughter my stepchild.

You cannot have Head of Household status if the dependent you are claiming your tax return is not related to you.

"I consider her daughter my stepchild." But she isn't, since, you are not married to her Mom.
