Course Description

Married individuals can either file a joint income tax return or, if they choose, may file two separate tax returns. Filing separate tax returns is usually (but not always, as you will see) done to reduce the tax liability. However, if finding the lowest tax liability is your main concern, there are no actual guidelines for determining which filing method you should use. If this is your goal, you need to calculate the tax liability under both scenarios to see which is better. Nonetheless, there are other factors you need to consider.

If the tax is paid, no problem, right? But what if the liability is not paid? Or what if there is a large audit assessment and the debt can’t be paid? Worse, what if they divorce and the audit adjustment was attributable to one former spouse, but IRS is trying to collect from the other, “innocent” one? Learn your options here.
