Can a registered domestic partner qualify to file his or her tax return using head-of-household filing status?
Domestic Partners Taxes

Can registered domestic partners or same-sex spouses whose marriage is recognized under state law file federal tax returns using a married filing jointly

According to an IRS publication: No. Registered domestic partners cannot file using a married filing separately or jointly filing status, because they are not spouses as defined by federal law. Likewise, same-sex partners who are married under state law may not file using a married filing separately or jointly filing status because federal law does not treat same-sex partners as spouses.
