Head of Household

Head of household tax filing status is available for unmarried taxpayers and certain separated taxpayers who provide a home for a qualifying person, such as a child or a parent.

If you qualify, you'll generally pay less tax as a head of household filer than as married filing separately or a single taxpayer. 

The head of household rules are fairly specific, so if you think you might qualify please ask for a review of your situation.
