It is very likely that I will be getting married in the next 8-13 months. As far as taxes and tax planning go, is there any reason to choose a particular time of year? For example, if I get married late in the year, will I have to file jointly for the entire year even if we were only married for a small part of the year? Does this mean it might be better to get married in January vs. December from a tax standpoint?On the other hand, we both own condos, and currently the interest payments are just under the threshold for being able to deduct the payments. If we get married, we would double our interest paid for the year. So I guess I'll have to find out what the standard deduction is for married filing jointly.In anycase, I'm not sure how likely it is that tax implications will affect our choice of a date. But any argument I can use to push the date as FAR away as possible would be appreciated! Just kidding on that last one! :)
