Filing Status

What is Filing Status?

Choosing the right filing status for your situation is very important – filing status is used to determine your filing requirements, standard deduction, eligibility for certain tax breaks, and your correct tax amount. There are five different filing statuses: Single, for unmarried or separated individuals; head of household, for unmarried or separated individuals who care for child dependents; married filing jointly, for married couples filing on a single tax return; married filing separately, for married couples filing on different tax returns; and qualifying widow or widower, for the surviving spouse to use for the first two years after losing their spouse if they are caring for child dependents.
