Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you today with your tax question.
Sorry it took me a second my computer froze. You need to adjust your withholding to single, or head of household if you have children. Your tax with holding will be about the same still it wont change much
ok great. Thank you.
Right now you probably have married filing jointly, simply change it to single and you will be fine
Do you have children
no minor children
Okay then yes do single with 1 exemption once you are divorced, if you want to change before the divorce is final and you are going to file married filing separately then choose that on your W4 which is used to update the withholding
So basically for right now, married filing separately 1 exemption, once the divorce is final change it to single w/ 1 exemption and you will be set
You are welcome!
