Separated But No Legal Papers

by Mary
(Florida)

Hi,


I live in Florida and my husband has lived in Arizona for over a year. There are no signed papers, so we are still legally married. He pays my major bills (rent, utilities, cable); otherwise, I am living on my Social Security (I am 64 years old). Do I have to claim the money he pays my bills with as income?

Thanks, Duped in Florida


Hello Mary,

Thank you for your contribution. I'm sorry for what you are going through. Good news is you do not have to claim the money he pays your bills with as income. Take care!

Separated - Not Separated

My common law partner and I separtated on April 1, 2010 and then started living together again as a couple on October 1, 2010. How does this affect our tax situation? During the separation, her child tax credits were increased by a significant amount.

Separation

Since texas does not have a legal seperation process and I have been seperated from my husband and do not communicate with him, Can I use the legal seperation option when filing my taxes since I was only married for a short time and does not know or have his information.
