Head of Household Status

The FTB has made it easier for taxpayers to claim head of household filing status. Beginning with the 2015 tax year, taxpayers claiming head of household filing status must complete and attach form FTB 3532, Head of Household Filing Status Schedule, to their tax returns. The new schedule helps taxpayers determine if they qualify for the filing status at the time of filing their returns, simplifies and reduces the questions asked, and assists taxpayers in completing the form correctly. The new schedule will also substantially reduce the volume of audit letters the FTB sends.
