Does anyone else have this issue: Critical diagnostic for Hoh status# 336 :  states efile: Hoh filing status requires a dep who lived at home, other dep, or non-dep qual child.  Daughter is marked in home for 12 months and  Eic only, not a dependent as type, and also Hoh not a qualifying child and get the same error message.  Is this a known issue?

Perhaps it's because you marked the daughter as not a qualifying child for HoH.

daughter is marked as qualifying child, she is a returning client, nothing changed from last year.  You can only choose if they are not a dependent but live in the home, EIC only or HOH

sorry, meant not a dependent for HOH, which is the drop down which states, not a dependent (sorry for the confusion)

the return clearly has the HOH status correctly and is also giving her the correct EIC, but still getting the critical warning

Not fixed. Mine is still not allowing the $500 for not a dependent, but HOH

I think I had this situation earlier today. Client had qualifying child but it was ex-wife’s turn to claim child. I’m not in office right now but will check tomorrow. I did get the diagnostic like you did, using HOH filing status and dependent used for HOH only. I put this return aside so I could check things out. I’ll get back to you.

I checked on my client with this situation.  Client is head of household with exemption going to ex-spouse this year.  Child lived with client all year.  I am getting the same critical diagnostic.  Maybe another program glitch?

I contacted customer service and it’s a known issue the last update caused.  There should be a fix with next update.
