How Do I File My Taxes During Divorce?

Clients ask me this question a lot. The answer is easy;
you can file them however benefits you the most. A married person NEVER has to
file joint taxes. Anyone can file separately. The same goes while
a divorce is pending. You can either file married filing separately, or married
filing joint. The best thing to do is have your tax person run the return both
ways and see which yields the best result as far as tax liability. If there is
a concern that if you do get a tax refund, your spouse will not give your half
to you, or if you are concerned that the other spouse will not cooperate in
getting the tax documents together, then the best thing to do is file
separately.
