Without knowing your entire tax situation I cannot tell you which would be best.
Whether you have a tax preparer or you use a software and do-it-yourself I would recommend running both scenarios. I will say that in general married filling separately is one of Married and wondering least beneficial filing statues in terms of credits, deductions and other tax niceties.Lady Looking Nsa FL Panama City Beac 32413
I'd also advise Married and wondering to look at the tax brackets for individual filing as opposed to married filing jointly. You could possibly eat up the potential health savings by raising your income wonderiing rates. I wanted to do the same thing in my personal situation but the math circled back around on me.
I think they have all the loopholes covered. You don't have to decide now, decide at time of tax prep.
When I prepare married couple's tax returns I input all your information as if you are filing jointly. Then I let client choose which route they want to take.
It doesn't take much extra time since all the data is already inputted. I'm married and wondering if I should file separately from my husband to avoid paying a higher penalty for not Married and wondering health insurance.
