can my boyfriend claim me as a dependent on his 2012 taxes?
Asked by: proffr
My boyfriend and i live in washington state and have lived together for most of 2011, all of 2012, into 2013. I don’t work, i take care of the home, and he provides for me financially. I’m pretty sure i qualify to be claimed as his dependent but i’m a bit confused. What i’ve read says he can’t claim me if our relationship breaks state laws about cohabitation. I don’t believe we do but washington has something called a meretricious relationship. We don’t break this type of relationship but we don’t qualify either. Does that count? or matter? also, would he still file as single? Also, we live in the downstairs of his parents house. Not sure if that matters, since he’s been filing his own taxes for 3 years and they don’t provide financially for me in any way. Sorry for all the questions together but i can’t seem to get any straight answers. If someone does answer, thank you for the time and info.
