Filing a joint tax return with your spouse has many advantages, like receiving one of the largest standard deductions every year and providing several tax breaks for those who choose to file jointly. When deciding whether or not you want to file jointly, it is important to consider both the positive and negative aspects and how you can be directly affected.


Married Filed Joint

The advantages of filing jointly with your spouse can allow you to deduct a significant amount of your income. Couples who file together will typically qualify for the following tax credits:

Earned Income Tax Credit
American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Education Tax Credits
Exclusion or credit for adoption expenses
Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit
Those who file jointly receive higher income thresholds for certain taxes and deductions. If you and your spouse earn a higher amount of income, you could potentially qualify for tax breaks.

Married Filed Separate

If a couple chooses to file separately they will receive fewer tax benefits compared to those who file jointly. Those who file separately from their spouse will only receive a standard deduction of $12,200 compared to those who file jointly and receive a deduction of $24,400.

Filing a separate return will automatically disqualify from several tax credits and deductions.
Separate filers are limited to smaller IRA contribution deductions.

You cannot take a deduction for student loan interest.
The capital loss deduction limit is $1,500 each when filing separately, instead of $3,000 on a joint return.
If you are unsure of how you want to file this tax season, consider filing both separately and jointly to see which way will be beneficial for both you and your spouse. Always be sure to double-check your calculations as well as the amount of income you are placing on your return and review if you have a net refund or a tax liability. This should help you decide how you should file moving forward in order to receive the most out of filing your taxes.
