I am married but have to file separately (by law). The account is with my spouse. Thanks!

I have a joint account but I have to file tax return separately. I am in the state of New York. Could anyone please kindly help me how the dividend/capital gain is allocated b/w tenants of the accounts?

I think we need a little more information. Who is the joint account with - your spouse or someone else? Are you married, intending to file a separate return, or are you single?
