Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
At your income level filing jointly or separately will probably not make much difference assuming both of you had sufficient withholding. Married filing separate limits certain credits but in your tax bracket you would not be eligible it anyway. You may actually benefit by filing separate if both of you own homes and can itemize your deductions. If you do not have any dependents and want to keep your financial affairs separate filing separate will not result in much higher taxes.
If your return is simple (no special situations like sale of stock, business income and such), use one of the online calculators like this one http://www.tax-rates.org/income-tax-calculator/?ref=nav_income to run a quick estimate for both situations: filing jointly and separately.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
