1) If my work requires me to live in a state other than that of my spouse/children, am I required to file status "married filing separately" or can I still file "married"?
2) If I can still file "married" status, does it matter which state our feeral return is filed in?
3) Must state and federal returns be filed using the same status, i.e.married vs.married filing separately or can one be filed as one status and the other filed as another?
4) Can I file our federal (married status) from the state I live in, file my state tax also in that state, and my wife file her state tax in the state where she and the kids live?
I know it's a bit confusing but thanks for your help.
