Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and can help you out.

You would qualify as a head of household since you maintain the house, are considered unmarried because your spouse did not live with you for the last 6 months of the year and have dependent children.

So, you would claim head of household on your taxes and report just your income on the taxes.

Let me know if you need anything else. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!

Glad we finally spoke ... Remember, if you didn't sign the return OR the consent to electronic filing. SOMEONE forged your signature.

...

Maybe your husband. Maybe your accountant.
