    As a dependent if you lived with them all year and this person supported you.

    Your partner may file as Head of Household and claim the children, but not you.

    If you have lived with the other person ALL YEAR - then they CAN claim you as a dependent IF your income is less than $4,300.

    It is called a "qualifying relative".  Under the rules for "qualifying relative" - any adult living in your household can be claimed as a dependent IF they live there ALL year AND if their income is less than $4,300.  They don't even need to be actually related.

    Now - since you have a child together - the other person can claim head of household BECAUSE OF THE CHILD and claim BOTH you and the child on their taxes.  

    Read and answer these questions to see if you qualify:

    If the person claims you but you're not married, it's FRAUD if they file as Single Head of Household instead of filing Joint. 

    If that person gets caught, there could be heavy penalties. 

    If the two of you file Joint even though you're not married, then the IRS will consider you married whether you get married or not.

    If you two are NOT married, or related, the person can NOT claim you on taxes.

    The other answers are wrong.  If you lived with them all year and had little or no income of your own, and they supported you, they can legally claim you as an "other" dependent.

    It would be tax fraud. The child can be claimed, not you.

    You're not being very clear. But if you two aren't married they can't claim u on their taxes unless you're disabled or something They can claim kids that's it. Why be with someone 15yrs and they have no plans of marrying you. Know your worth and get married

    Maybe.

    If you lived with this person for the entire year, they provided more than 1/2 of your support and your income is under ~$4200 for all of 2020, they can, most likely, claim you as a dependent.

    The only caveat would be if there is a local/state law/ordinance where you live the bans living together without being married.  These laws are almost never enforced but they do exist.
