By all means do the arithmetic to see whether you will come out ahead with Married, Filing Separately, but I think you'll find that rarely works out better than joint filing.You don't give you're salary, but assuming it is $50,000 and that your wife made $16, 000, and assuming standard deduction and just the two of you as exemptions, with MFS you'd pay approximately $10, 600 and MFJ approximately $9160. If you're making much more than that as a teacher, bless you.
