Can two people, unmarried, living in an apartment claim EIC

This answer was rated:

Can two people, unmarried, living in an apartment claim EIC for 2 different children? We are unmarried but living together, we make almost exactly the same amount of money and share all the responsibilities pretty equally, we have 2 children. Can I claim 1 child and he claim the other child for the EIC with us both living in the same residence?

Hi. Yes, you can. But only one of you can claim Head of household, usually the one with higher income. The other one will have to claim single with a dependent. If all rules are met ( you can both claim EITC.
