Can I claim one year as Married filing separately and the next year as married filing jointly?

Stephanie B. :

Thank you for your question.

Yes you can. Each year stands alone and you can choose for each year if you want to file a joint return with your spouse or file a MFS return.

Please let me know if you need additional clarification.

I look forward to your response.
