My boyfriend hasn't filed a tax return in decades and I am an independent contractor since 2017 I haven't filed, but I have 3 years of 1099s I'm filing asap. We have a child and he is a stay at home dad, I'm head of household. I'm not working due to covid 19 (I groom dogs as an independent contractor and he informally assists me). I need the $ for him to cover his living expenses, but we arent married. Can I claim him as a dependent? I pay his credit cards from my bank account. If not, HOW does one get a stimulus check for someone that haven't filed taxes in years but lives in the household and I'm financially responsible for?
