Excuse me Roy, but yes it is true - if we are talking about Federal Taxes... which is what I was specifically referring to in my answer. I was not aware that this conversation or message board pertained to State taxes. Yes, it is true on the Federal level, and FS 3 is used as a strategy by some couples who are happily married. Again, couples should prepare their returns both ways, and use the itemized deductions in the way that will benefit them. I have seen FS 3 and itemized under one spouse while the other spouse had a lower income, fair withholding, didn't want to be caught up in his Schedule C, business expenses, and SE tax, and wanted her refund so she could go shopping! FS 3 is a useful strategy for SOME couples - Not all - on the Federal level, and it is used quite often.Toni
