Thanks for working on this. I was wondering if you were able to find an answer to this question? My (separated) husband and I were wondering how to deal with this so we can file our taxes and be done with the issue ASAP.

Me. I have been separated since April 30, 2004. I need an answer too. ASAP.

Don’t mean to butt in, but I separated from my ex in July 2004 and just finished filing my taxes because of trying to get financial aid for my daughter graduating high school and wanting to go to college. Because we lived together for more than 6 months out of the year, I could not file Head of Household which would have gotten me a rather large refund back from the IRS. Instead I had to file married filing separately and am getting back $300 on one and having to pay $50 on the other…should have kicked the bum out in June instead of July.

Thank you for the information. I finally called H&R Block, and they were able to help me answer my questions over the phone. If you have filing questions, I suggest you call them–they were very helpful and very friendly.

What is the law regarding filing for taxes? My husband and I separated on June 30, 2004. Are we required to file as “married filed separately” or can we file as two separate individuals?

Any information you could give me would be very helpful–the federal IRS and the NC IRS website were not helpful. Thank you very much.
