We have a daughter who lived with us for 8 months in 2016. She works and files separately. She did not pay for rent or expenses. Can we deduct her living expenses?

She is claiming herself on her return.  Can we claim her living expenses for 8 months on our return?

No you can't claim the living expenses you paid for her. If you can't claim her as a dependent, there are not deductions you can take.
