I don't understand the "Qualifying for Head of Household" state taxes question

Your kids.  Your fiancée could also place you in that filing status, but only if you paid for over half of their care and they fulfill the requirements of a dependent.  To see if they qualify as a dependent and if you can claim them on your taxes, please use the IRS interactive tool Who Can I Claim As A Dependent.  Head of Household is a filing status such as filing single or married filing jointly.  In order to qualify for head of household a few of the requirements is that you are unmarried and have at least one dependent.  To learn more about this filing status, please see the Turbo Tax article below.
