Course Description

This program will trace how the U.S. Tax Code has dealt with marriage, from the inception of the income tax through today. We will cover how filing statuses came about, how taxes worked in the early days of the tax code, why there's a "marriage penalty," and how sometimes (from a tax standpoint) it's better for two people to remain unmarried rather than married.

Why You Should Attend ?

Tax professionals know about filing statuses and the marriage penalty. This course traces the history of how those came to be, from the start of the tax code in 1913. We also look at issues with how there are times when two unmarried people are in a better tax position than two married people.

Learning objectives

  • How filing statuses came about
  • What is the marriage penalty and where did it come from?
  • The tax aspects of being married vs. being unmarried
  • How taxes worked in the early days of the U.S. Tax Code, compared to today.
