Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi and welcome to Just Answer!4803 is FTB not federal form. It is required if HOH status was denied previously.This form is ONLY required if the taxpayer is responding to the Head of Household Audit letter. As long as there is NO audit letter - this form is not needed.
On the other hand - using form 4803 is recommended to avoid later receiving the HOH audit letter in the mail asking them to provide information about qualifications for HOH filing status.If you are using a tax preparation software - in most situation this form is included.
