Married

by Kristen

My husband and I got married late October 2010. We continued to live in different states in separate households until January 2011. I filed head of household and he filed single. Was this incorrect?

Married Filing Separately or Married Filing Joint

by Marie
(South Jersey)

Which filing status would bring the largest return? One Spouse earns $62K, is a homeowner, claims "3" as witholding on W4. Second spouse earns $55K, pays on student loans, and claims a "1" as witholding on W4. Would it be best to file as married filing separate, or as married filing joint? Thanks in advance for any potential responses to my question:)

Newly Married Couple in 2010, When Single 2009 One Itemized..

by Jessica
(Atlanta, GA 30341)

In 2009, we were single. I itemized my deductions including state tax. My boyfriend at the time took the standard deduction. We were married in 2010 and will be filing jointly and itemizing. Will the fact that I itemized and he did standard deduction when we were single in 2009 affect anything on the 2010 taxes?
Thanks!

Non-Married Homeowners

by Susan Jones
(California)

Unmarried homeowners received tax documents for mortgage interest, re taxes and mortgage insurance made out to both individuals. However, there was only one person's ss#. Can these two just split the deductions?

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Yes you can split the deductions; However, the one who's ss# is listed will report their half on Schedule A line 10 under Mortgage Interest and Points from form 1098.

While the other who's ss# was not listed will report their half on Schedule A line 11 under Home Mortgage Interest Not Reported on Form 1098 and then fill out the name, ID and address from the form 1098.

Thinking of getting married. Future husband makes 50,000. He usually gets back $1000. Will getting married affect our returns. Oh yeah and we have a baby in the oven.
