Hi and welcome to Just Answer!Delaware filing status may be different than federal filing status. Married persons may file joint, separate or combined separate Delaware tax returns even if they file a joint federal tax return. Married Filing Combined Separate (MFCS) is only available for residents - that is actually two separate returns that are combined on the same form. Separate tax returns are most beneficial if both spouses have adjusted gross income above $9400.
