Episode 25 - Some Dirty Secrets About Filing a Joint Tax Return

In this episode, I discuss some of the dirty secrets around filing a joint return. I will be answering such questions as:

  • Am I required to file a joint return?
  • Can't I just get a divorce to split our joint tax debt?
  • I didn't sign the return, so I can't be held liable can I?
  • I can just file a joint return now and if things don't go right, we can just file amended returns to file separately.

My goal is to help taxpayers understand that filing a joint tax return has its advantages. You just need to know that your choice should not be a blind default but a thoughtful choice. I hope I hit the mark.
