Can I deduct my girlfriend who lives with me?


Generally the answer is no. There are various tests that must be met for someone to be claimed as a dependent. One of the tests is the "relationship"test. If the person was a qualifying relative that you provided 50% support and they lived with you all the entire year and made less than $4,050 of earned income, then the answer could be yes.
