Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
As long as you are married, you can file jointly but you both need to agree to do so. She cannot make you file a joint return if you don't want to. If you choose to file a separate return, she will have to do the same. Because you are still married, your filing options are filing jointly or separately. You will need to be legally separated or divorced to file single.
