Ok, here's the situation:
My girlfriend and her 2 kids (11yr & 15yr) moved into my house at the begining of 2005.
She gets about $600/mo in disability, $200/mo in food stamps, and $300/mo in child support for ONE child.
I work a steady well paying job, pay the bills, help supplement the food , and pay the mortgage. We use her income mainly for savings and entertainment.
Though we both agree to let her ex-husband claim his daughter on his taxes, she wants me to claim her and her son (whose father is dead) on my taxes.
Can I do this, and do I file as Head of House Hold?
BTW though we are not married, we have filed for "Domestic Partners" if that makes any difference.
