  • Only one person can claim head of house hold, so if you aren't married, I believe you can as long as he doesn't file first.

  • I don't know. I asked my husband and he said you can only do that if your married (he's not 100% sure on that). It would be best to ask a tax professional. Maybe H&R Block. I love them.

  • Do you have children? Only one person can claim head of household and you have to have children.

  • Ok, I am not positive about children, but I know only one person can claim head of household.

  • It would be better if he filed for head of household, you would get a bigger tax return because of his income.

  • I'm pretty sure that's a no. go to www.irs.gov and search for filing options. You'll be able to see the rules that apply.

  • Okay so I got a hold of someone whos job deals with taxes and things like that and I can claim head of household because we are not married... his taxes are going back to the state this year that's why I wanted to claim so we can get more back.
