Post can boyfriend claim all my children?

My boyfriend and i have lived together all year. I have 2 children from a previous marriage. I receive child support from my children's father. My boyfriend pays for shelter expenses, rent, electric, water etc. Use child support for the kids clothes, school activities and expenses and various other items for the kids. My boyfriend and i had a baby together this year as well. I was high risk for pregnancy so i worked very little. My income will be less than 3,500. I also received state medical and snap assistance. Could/ should my boyfriend claim all 3 kids?

It depends; as long as you and your boyfriend meet a few requirements, he can claim the children as his dependents. However, if you qualify to file your own taxes( or your former husband can claim them as his dependents), you/ your former husband must claim the children since it's your/his biological offsprings. You may have to file your return even if your taxable income is zero as long as you have Federal income tax withheld in 2012? Or you are subject to tax refund form your previous return ort etc. In order for your boyfriend to claim your children and yo perhaps on his taxes, all of you need to meet a few requirements. First, you must have made $3,900 for 2013 or less for the year, thus qualifying as a dependent yourself. You and your children need to have lived with him for the full year, for example, all of 2013. Your boyfriend must have provided over 50 percent of the children's expenses, from food to medical care to shelter. Since the children can't care for themselves, these conditions are fairly easy to meet. SO, generally speaking, if your children can be claimed by another parent, like thir biological father, your boyfriend may not be able to claim the children on his tax return (he still may be able to claim you as his dependent on his return). However, if the father is not involved in the children's life -- and pays nothing to support the children -- and the all of you live together, and your boyfriend supports you and children, there's a chance he can claim your children and you on his tax return.
