These tax credits are not, I think I might be wrong, the 30

These tax credits are not, I think I might be wrong, the 30 percent Tax Credit from solar panels. In other words, some solar companies are quoting the roof and solar installation as the 30 % I would get back from the IRS (assuming my tax exceeds the 30%) while others are not, they only include the solar panel costs. In other words lets say the roof replacement, which is necessary, cost $21k. Some say I could deduct $7k (in addition to the solar panels costs 30%), while others say no.Who's right?

My wife and I have been married very briefly. So brief that

My wife and I have been married very briefly. So brief that we didn't even file a tax return together. Now we are separated and not in speaking terms - also Because I don't have her Social Security number my only option is to file "married filing separately".We live in California and my tax software is asking me if I have any additions or subtractions to my income due to communal property law. I have no idea how to answer that question.My wife does not need to file a return for 2015. The only income was mine. So all I have is a W-2. We don't own any property or vehicles or have a joint savings account or anything of that nature.I noticed that if I subtract to my income when answering the question my refund goes up. Can you please help me understand how to answer this question?
