Below the filing status 4 (HOH) line on the Main Information Sheet, there is a box asking for the name and SSN of the dependent you are NOT claiming as an exemption. Enter this information any time that you have a person who qualifies you for the Head of Household filing status, but the person is not your dependent.
If you qualify for EIC and/or Dependant Care for this child, list the child's information in the dependent section (line 6C) of the Main Information Sheet. The Dependency Code should be "0"(zero). (Dependent Code 0 means the person is not being claimed as your dependent.) Make sure that the box for EIC (Earned Income Credit and/or DC (Dependent Care Credit), whichever applies, is marked with an "X." Then go to the Schedule EIC Worksheet and/or Form 2441 and enter any applicable information and questions about the child.
This information applies to all years of the UltimateTax software.
