Can my ex and I use the same address when filing taxes if I’m filing HOH and he’s filing MFS? All his mail goes to my house “which was our house”.
If you are not legally married as of 12/31/2019 then you can file either as Single or Head of Household if you are eligible. See this TurboTax support FAQ for HOH - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/family/help/do-i-qualify-for-head-of-household/01/25539
Can you both use the same address? Yes
Can your ex spouse file as Married Filing Separately? NO, if he has not remarried he can only file as Single
We are not “legally”divorced. Just separated. A lady from H&R told me to file as HOH and him file as MFS.
If you are legally married and living in the same home as your spouse, then you cannot file your tax return as Head of Household. You can only file as either MFJ or MFS.

We don’t live together. We are separated. He just still receives mail here. So i wanted to make sure he could put my address on his return.
Ok...In that case you will be fine using the same address and filing as HOH and your spouse filing as MFS.
Would the irs ask for his proof of residency? Or is the address more so just where he receives mail and not so much where he resides?
Where he receives his mail. Many people receive their mail at one address and actually live at another address.
