Head of Household

Level 3

Here's the fact patter:

Client filed MFJ in 2021. She separated in 2022 after major issues because her spouse does not work. Spouse got kicked out the house in the fall of 2022 and the wife is living with the young kids at home and she is a highschool teacher. Does she qualify for HOH? I know the IRS give only 2 options MFS or MFJ for married couples but wanted to see what you guys think.

Option 3: Married persons considered unmarried, you may want to look into that and see if she qualifies. They have to live apart for the last six months of the year.
