View Full Version : Married--Filing Separately Or Together
01-04-2011, 08:07 PM
Is there any difference for being married and filing taxes separate vs. together? I will be opening daycare next year, since I'm currently at a center saving up $$$ for our future home to begin my career, and wonder if it is easier to file taxes seperately each year or together. I just got married this year so we do have the option to file together next month.

I just got married this last year too. Everything I've looked up through google searches seems to indicate that filing together is better. The only reason I found to file separately is in the case of one person having debt that the other wants no responsibility over.

The first couple of years we were married I completed our taxes both ways just to see and it was always better to file together, though I don't remember why, it just was.

You are almost always better off filing jointly. You can calculate your taxes both ways to see which way comes out better for you.
