Recommended Posts

I know that if you are a U.S citizen you can include your spouse in filing taxes by filing married jointly for Federal. I wanted to know the case for State tax? Do i file as single in state tax or married as well(joint or separate?)?? Thank you

Married filing jointly? I thought it is only for federal because my husband is a non-resident alien. He still abroad but we got married early last year

In PA you can file with a different status than your federal return. I'm filing my federal return as married filing jointly and I'm filing my PA return as married filing seperately. I'll spare you all the details of why I'm doing it this way but I just wanted to point out that every state has their own tax code so don't think that what applies in one state will necessarily apply in another.
