Did the IRS receive your return? Was it rejected? Under normal circumstances, I would say call the IRS and find out what is going on before your take action.

 

If they found that you were not qualified to be Head of Household, you would have had to amend your return.

I have a similar question about filing in 2019... I hadn't filed in 2019 because I didn't make that much in 2018 so was waiting to file 2019-20 together. However, I didn't work at all in 2019 so I was claimed as a dependent this year.  I still haven't filed for the return in 2019, can you tell me how I can get that done and if it will change the fact I'm currently not eligible for the stimulus relief payment?

If someone claimed you as a dependent for tax year 2019 you will not be eligible for the stimulus payment this year.  If you are required to file a return for tax year 2019 then you should do so and indicate on your return that you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.   

 

You must file a return if any of the following apply.

  1. Your unearned income was more than $1,100.

  2. Your earned income was more than $12,200.

  3. Your gross income was more than the larger of—

    1. $1,100, or

    2. Your earned income (up to $11,850) plus $350.

 

Unless whoever claimed you as a dependent should not have and will be amending their return, and you otherwise are not required to file for 2019 then you don't need to.

 

The stimulus payment is an advance of a new credit on your 2020 return.  If you do qualify (income less than $75,000 and not a dependent) on your 2020 return and do not get a stimulus payment this year you will get it when you file your 2020 return.
