Girlfriend NO. Baby yes if you are the biological father or adopted father and you are supporting the child. You need to marry to take a deduction for your girl friend.

Most likely yes, but the amount will depend on a lot of things you don't give info on. Could range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
Answer #3 | 12/12 2013 13:55
if you provide a household for the baby(the baby lives with you)you can claim head of household and your standard deduction is $8950 rather than $6100, this makes $2850 of your income less taxable as for the g/f did she live in your household the ENTIRE year, did she earn $3900, did you provide more than 50% of her support and can she be claimed on the tax return of anyone else? she could be claimed as a qualifying relative which means another $3900 or your income is not taxable plus you probably have the EIC and additional child credit

If you qualify yes. Not enough info to say.

You can claim her if she lived with you all year and has income under $3900. Unless you have court ordered custody, you can claim child if mom sings form 8332.

Possibly, but it's not that simple. It depends on whether you live together, how much money she makes, what percentage or fraction of their support you provide, and several other things.
