Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

You will file your usual 1040, there will be no special form for you. But depending on the type of business your husband bought (single member LLC, scorp, corporation or partnership) there will be additional form and maybe a separate business return required.

It’s either a corporation or local. Nothing is needed separately for me though?
