Get your taxes done using TurboTax

The poster never said anything about "Married filing Jointly" - the poster asked how NOT to file *Head of Household* which TurboTax will recommend if the unmarried (or considered unmarried) tax payer has a dependent and otherwise qualifies.

 

You can always change the filing status to force another filing status, but again - why would you want to not file HOH if you qualify for the larger standard deduction for HOH?

 

@jmarron310 - please clarify the original filing status on the first filed tax return.   If it actually was Married Filing Jointly then the other comments apply - it cannot be changed after April 15, 2019 unless you actually were not married at all, in which case you need professional help since that cannot be fixed by amending.
