Ok, I have one last thing to check on my tax form 1040A.<br><br>
Do I check Single or Head of Household<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br>
I have never been married, I pay for all of my stuff (cs didn't start until 07) I have a dependent (ds<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/thumbsuck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumbsuck"> ) that I claim and I claim myself as a dependent.<br><br>
Any thoughts ladies?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="help">

From the IRS site:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Generally, to qualify for head of household status, you must be unmarried and you must have paid more than half the cost of maintaining as your home a household that was the main home for a qualifying person for more than half the year. You may also qualify for head of household status if you, though married, file a separate return, your spouse was not a member of your household during the last six months of the tax year, and you provided more than half the cost of maintaining as your home a household that was the main home for more than one half of your tax year of a qualifying person.</td>
</tr></table></div>
