Subject:  dependent ?, etc. Date:  3/1/2001  10:36 PM

I lived with my mother in 2000 in her home which she owns solely. She is separated from her husband (my father).

I am single, I provided support to her, paid the household bills, etc. She had no job during 2000, she had income of only a few hundred dollars from bank account interest. My father lives elsewhere and provided no support to her.

Can I claim her as a dependent?

Can I file as head of household?
