The United State Tax Court recently heard a case where a man supported his fiancé and her two children that he lived with and claimed head of household status. In Frank Baker v. Commissioner, the court found he did not qualify for the claimed status because the children were not his adoptive or biological children and he was not yet married to the children’s mother.
