I am filling out a 433-F form for setting up payments to pay off back taxes. Its asking for the monthly expense of my dependent care. I claim my girlfriend as a dependent. What I am unsure of is what can be considered as dependent care. I took the test to see if she qualifies as a relative dependent and she does. I Just can't find good information on what is considered dependent care. She is an artist and I pay for her studio space every month but she still isn't to the point of making money from it yet. Would this be something that i could use?====> Of course you can even claim your GF as your dependent as a qualifying nonrelative aslloongass her gros s income is less than $4.05K for 2016 and your home must have been that person's official residence for the full year ; however, your GF is not your qualifying person
Is her healthcare considered dependent care? =====> A Qualifying Person for the Child and Dependent Care Credit can Your spouse or dependent age 13 or over, if physically or mentally incapable of caring for themselves.
In addition, the Qualifying Person must have lived with you for more than half of the year. To qualify, you paid someone to provide care for a Qualifying Person so that you could work, seek employment, or attend school, or if you were disabled.
