Unhappy Question regarding W2/Tax filing

Hi, I am an Indian, working in US with a H1b visa. This January, I left my previous company, and joined a new organization in Florisa, US. I was required to fill up the W2 form. I am single and living alone, so I used to fill W2 as SINGLE in my last company. But this year, my mom was visiting me from India, so I put myself as "Head of Household" in W2 form.

Later, in an website I found out that visiting parents (with B1 visa), can not be considered as dependent, so I can not be head of house-hold, I should Have mentioned SINGLE this year also in W2.

My question is how do I amend this? Would it be amended automatically, if I file as SINGLE as the end of this year? IF not, what is the process?

UNLESS you are a US resident for tax purposes, you can not file yoru return as HOH;you do not put myself as "Head of Household" in your W2 form, but you put it in W4.however, not really. The W-4 designation doesn't impact your filing status. Just make sure you FILE as single on your return
