Dependent qualification question
I'm trying to file my taxes in Georgia & was trying to find out if I could claim my boyfriend as a dependent.
He's been living with me for just over a year now & has been without a job until just recently.
He was getting unemployment checks in the mail up until march of last year which he used to pay rent fees on the apartment that he shared with his roommate & their lease ended last June. So basically, his mailing address changed to my home in January of 2013 when he moved in but his name was also on an Apartment lease until June of 2013.
Seeing that we have been in living together for over a year & he has received less than $5000 in income over the past year, is there a way that I can claim him since I've been providing lodging, food, & clothing?
Thanks very much for all the advice in advance!
