Determining Your Correct Filing Status
It’s important to use the correct filing status when filing your income tax return. It can impact the tax benefits you receive, the amount of your standard deduction and the amount of taxes you pay. It may even impact whether you must file a federal income tax return.
Are you single, married or the head of your household?
There are five filing statuses on a federal tax return.
The most common are “Single,” “Married Filing Jointly” and “Head of Household.
” The Head of Household status may be the one most often claimed in error.
1. Marital Status.
Your marital status on the last day of the year is your marital status for the entire year.
2. If You Have a Choice.
If more than one filing status fits you, choose the one that allows you to pay the lowest taxes.
3. Single Filing Status.
Single filing status generally applies if you are not married, divorced or legally separated according to state law.
4. Married Filing Jointly.
A married couple may file a return together using the Married Filing Jointly status. If your spouse died during 2012, you usually may still file a joint return for that year.
5. Married Filing Separately.
If a married couple decides to file their returns separately, each person’s filing status would generally be Married Filing Separately.
6. Head of Household.
The Head of Household status generally applies if you are not married and have paid more than half the cost of maintaining a home for yourself and a qualifying person.
7. Qualifying Widow(er) with Dependent Child.
This status may apply if your spouse died during 2010 or 2011, you have a dependent child and you meet certain other conditions.
