Head of Household (HOH) Practitioner's Corner

Head of Household (HOH) Workshops

HOH workshops are available each fiscal year, starting in July, subject to budget constraints. The workshops provide an in-depth review of our HOH program.

Please note: We provide these workshops to tax organizations and tax practitioner chapters. We cannot schedule workshops with individual tax practitioners.

HOH workshop topics include:

  • An overview of the HOH program
  • Who qualifies for the HOH filing status
  • Pertinent HOH law
  • Common denial reasons

For more information about the topics covered in our seminar, see FTB 1585, Head of Household Workshop Supplement and our PowerPoint presentation in the June issue of Tax News.

Contact our workshop coordinator to schedule an HOH workshop. Please give us 20 days' advance notice, and tell us your preferred date and time, as well as three alternate dates. Allow two hours for the workshop.
