only 1 person can file HOH per household. To file HOH you must have paid more then 50% of the household expenses hence only 1 person can be over that threshold.

To file as HOH you must:

  • Pay for more than half of the household expenses.
  • Be considered unmarried for the tax year, and.
  • You must have a qualifying child or dependent.
**I don't work for TT. Just trying to help. All the best.
