A person can claim head of household only if the dependent is related, almost any relationanything but a cousin. You can not claim head of household if they are not related.
Yes, you would have to file head of household. This is perfectly legitimate and quite common. The person you are claiming as your dependent COULD NOT claim his/herself on their own separate tax return. Speaking from my experience as a tax examiner, I would try to not complicate matters by providing too much information, aside from that required on the "dependents claimed" lines. Additionally, I wouldn't include any superfluous handwritten or typed correspondence outside of the typical standard forms regarding the nature of the dependant, aside from non-relative. I wouldn't necessarily qualify your support of this individual as a percentage, if you said you paid the "majority" of an individual's expenses it would be less open to confusion and scrutiny. 60% is a majority, after all. One down-side is if the individual you plan claim is receiving social security benefits, the benefits might be subject to a living adjustment since you are easing the individual's burden. Once again, it would pay to be vague. I doubt seriously anything would be affected retroactively, it depends largely on the information the dependant included on his/her social disability claim, that is if he/she even submitted one. Trying to simplify - to claim as a dependent, regardless of how you file - the dependent must be a "qualifying" (strictly defined) child or relative (2 different catagories), that isn't claimed by anyone else, including themselves on their own return. It would seem you have no chance.
Thanks for the feedback!
