Help!! HOH OR MFJ??

Husband and I hit a rough patch and he moved out in March of 2016, so I am qualified to file as HOH for 2016. My question is, if we are trying to reconcile and do get back together in 2017, will I then change my filing status back to MFJ? Will this trigger a red flag if I keep switching my filing status?

No red flag at all. Then on your 2016 return you may file your return as HOH or MFJ whatever you want aslongas you get together before you file your return; on your 2017 return you may file it as MFJ/MFS.
