Tax Tip for Current Year Tax Returns:

2019 Single With Dependents

Compared to the single filing status, the head of household filing status will get taxpayers lower tax rates, a higher standard deduction, plus help qualify more easily for tax credits. Many singles with dependents (children, grandchildren, etc.) qualify as heads of household; other unmarried people and, with some exception, legally married people with dependents might qualify as head of household. Generally however, to qualify to file as a head of household, you have to be unmarried and you have to support a dependent or qualifying relative.
