Can i claim my mother and sister on my taxes they lived with me for 2017

The reason they moved in with me is because my mother had back surgery and was not able to do anything.  So i payed for everything that we needed for all our needs.

What income (if any) did your mom have for 2017?  What about your sister?  How old is she?  Did she work? When did they move in with you?

IRS interview to help determine who can be claimed:

Am I Head of Household?

If you qualify as Head of Household, when you enter your filing status (single or married filing separately) into Personal Info, and then enter your qualifying dependent, TurboTax will offer HOH as your filing status.
