Head of Household is a filing status, not a deduction.  To qualify:

  • You must be single or, for the entire last 1/2 of the year, lived apart from your spouse.
  • You have a qualifying dependent living with you for more than 1/2 of the year that you provide more than 1/2 of the cost of maintaining a residence for. The qualifying relative must be an actual close relative (such as your kids.)
