Does Fed see how many months of the year I put in Turbox that my mom lived with me? My desktop crashed and I can't retrieve info from 2016 to 2020 tax years

My mom is selling her house and she lived with me off and on last few years as I claimed head of household.  I don't have this info on my hard copy 1040

The number of months a dependent lived in your home is not reported anywhere on a tax return.

Why are you asking about this --- and what does it have to do with the upcoming sale of your mother's house?

the rule applies only if she rented out the house.

Did she?

IRS is not going to audit her anyway.
