Can I File HOH

My husband and I have been living apart for 7 months, we have 3 children and have agreed on everything without haveing to get a mentor involved. We have continued to share the same checking acct b/c we figured it was easier since we have so much together. Can I claim Head of house hold even though im still married? We live in florida and legal seperation is not recognized here and we havent yet made the decision on divorce.

If my mom is claiming me on her taxes, I'm 19 and I want to collect food stamps, would that effect her head of household title?

My husband filed as head of household as we just recently married and this was what he did before he met me. However, I believe this was a mistake. I have not filed yet, but can we fix his filed taxes? How do we go about doing that?

Head of Household

If my qualifying child gets married in late july, can I still claim the head of household for my taxes as i did provide 100% of the living expenses for more than 1/2 of the year. Will she be able to file as "married" also? Her income was less than $5000.00

Head of household?

by Kim
(Cincinnati, OH)

I am a renter, and live with a boyfriend who gets social security disability. He is not able to work, and therefore doesn't file taxes. He can't be claimed on anyone else's return. Can I file as head of household since I pay over 1/2 of the living expenses, etc?

Head of Houshold Tax Rules

by Chris
(Fayetteville, NC)

I have a question about rule #2 below...

You may be able to file as head of household if you meet all the following requirements.
1. You are unmarried or “considered unmarried” on the last day of the year.
2. You paid more than half the cost of keeping up a home for the year.
3. A “qualifying person” lived with you in the home for more than half the year (except for temporary absences, such as school). However, if the “qualifying person” is your dependent parent, he or she does not have to live with you. See Special rule for parent , later, under Qualifying Person.

Does the person have to make 1/2 of the money themselves from a job or does Child Support and Spousal Maintenance count as income for this rule?
