Tax laws for separated persons


#1

I would suggest married filing separately. As long as you don’t live together you are separated.


#2

you can file separately whether you’re separated or not. If you have kids, file as Head of Household.


#3

You have to be separated for 6 months or more to file head of household…


#4

How do I need to file on my taxes if I have been separated since April of 2005? We do not have separation papers. Are we still considered legally separated in North Carolina?
