  • Married filing separately Wisconsin

    Is there a good summary I can access that would outline the tax deductions we could not take if my husband and I choose to file our taxes as married filing separately instead of married filing jointly? Thanks.

    I know that you cannot get the following credit:

    Earned Income Credit
    Child Tax Credit
    Additonal Child Tax Credit

    And I belive if your spouse itemized you have to also which can be bad if you don't own a home

    Just a suggestion if you don't want to file with him because he owes money to irs or someone else file a Injured spouse for that way you can get your portion of the refund.

      This is a link to "married filing separately" information at the IRS website. Not knowing exactly what your situation is, I suggest also consulting a tax professional.

          tax filing separately

          A married couple is known as to be a single entity. The IRS thinks this is the case also. That said, once a couple has gotten married they must decide whether to file individually or together.

            FreddyHansen, please do not reply to old dead threads. This thread was started in 2006. I'm sure the original poster no longer needs an answer. Thanks.
