Can you give me a more specific answer or how can I tell this to my tax prepare
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 1 month ago
Tax preparer would be familiar but if no one else is claiming the gf and she resides with you in your home that qualifies. She may confirm this as well. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

I keep looking online and it seems as I don’t qualify as head of house hold as she is not a relative

If there is residence and dependence it is permitted.
