What is My Filing Status?
Your filing status is used to determine your filing requirements, standard deduction, eligibility for certain credits, and your correct tax. If more than one filing status applies to you, this interview will choose the one that will result in the lowest amount of tax.
Information You Will Need:
- Marital status and spouse's year of death (if applicable)
- The percentage of the costs that your household members paid towards keeping up a home
Estimated Completion Time: 5 minutes. However: 5 minutes of inactivity will end the interview and you will be forced to start over.
The following interview covers the same questions you would answer if you called our toll-free tax assistance telephone number or if you came into a Taxpayer Assistance Center.
