Tax Tip For Married Couples

Filing jointly isn't necessarily the best option for you and your spouse, even if you have promised to be there in sickness and in health. The goal is to collectively pay the least amount of taxes possible, so run the numbers for both filing scenarios before settling.

Couples may benefit from separate filing if one of you had large medical expenses, high business expenses, or if one of you had significant theft losses. It could be beneficial to seek professional help the first time you file after marriage to prevent overpaying your taxes.
