Really? What caused the change of filing status back to single? (Hint: it wasn't divorce.)


That doesn't make it a "death tax" any more than getting divorced results in a "divorce tax" or choosing not to marry in the first place results in a "bachelor(ette) tax." These labels are silly.

Her income tax increased because she has a 60% higher income now on a per individual basis.
