Select the last option on the Add Dependent> Relationship> Non Dep (HoH & EIC only) [Non Dependent Head of Household & Earned Income Credit only]
You don't have to have a dependent claimed on your return in order to file as a Head of Household (HoH). You still may be able to file using the status even if the other parent claims the child as a dependent.
HoH status can be claimed by the parent who has custody for more than half of the year. Typically, eligibility is determined by your custody agreement.
To use the HoH status you must meet a series of requirements, including:
Additionally, you may also qualify for the Child and Dependent Care Credit, Earned Income Credit for those with lower income amounts, and other tax credits you normally claim.
The other noncustodial parent may claim the dependency exemption for the child, if you, the custodial parent, release a claim to exemption. Also, the noncustodial parent may claim the child tax credit for the child if the requirements for the child tax credit are met.
