Should I file as Head of Household, if I'm the daughter but earn all the income? And can I file my mother and sisters as dependents? I also pay all the bills/rent.

Yes, you should file as head of household when all the following is true:

You are unmarried or considered unmarried on the last day of the year.  

You paid more than half the cost of keeping up a home for the year. 

A qualifying person lived with you in the home for more than half the year (except for temporary absences, such as school). However, if the qualifying person is your dependent parent, he or she doesn't have to live with you
