Do My Husband and I, have to file 2 returns?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just wondering if you can help me.  Last year when I filed, my husband and I prepared separate returns.  I thought unless indicated, filing together, still meant having to prepare 2 returns.  Do I have to file twice? We have very basic returns and still want to file together.

 

Thanks for your time

Hi steskey5426,

Regardless of whether you are preparing two separate returns in two different files, or two returns in a single file, each taxpayer must submit his/her own return only once.

How do I know if I have both returns within one file?  I am the Family Head, I added my spouse and filled out the "complete" under interview setup.  So now that I am done, and it has been sent/filed, does my husband have to start his own?

If you are the Family head and you have added your spouse, it means your returns are in one file.

So, you must complete these two returns together and use the service NetFile to submit them.
