Can I claim my girlfriends child on my taxes and get full EIC?
You can't. You are not related to this child by marriage or by blood, so you can't list him as a qualifying child. And, since he's not a qualifying child, he's not going to get you HOH or EIC. If you list him as a QC, you will be audited, will lose and will be barred from claiming EIC for 10 years.

Your girlfriend's son is not your Qualifying Child. He can be your qualifying relative if you meet the requirements, so you are not eligible for EIC for the dependent.

No. Unrelated persons can not qualify you for EIC.

It's possible that your gf and her son can be claimed as your dependents, if they lived with you ALL year, you provided over half of their support, and she had less than $3650 in gross income for the year. But in no case can you get EIC for her son since he is not your biological child, unless you and his mom get married so he's your legal stepson.

Unless your married and have adopted the child, you can't even claim them as dependents, much less get the EIC. Trying to do do will invite an audit as it is a fraudulent claim.
