If I file for a legal separation from my husband can I file as head of household?

Midlothian, TX |

We were married in Feb 2009 and are no longer living together. Can I file as head of household for 2009 if I file for legal separation?

  1. There is no legal separation in Texas. Your options for filing will be married, separate, or married, joint.

    I would consult a CPA on whether you can claim head of household.

    Good luck.
