I got married at the end of 2000. When computing our taxes, I realized that we will get hit hard by filing jointly for 2000 (and married filing separte doesn't help us either).I know that your marital status on the last day of the year determines your filing status, but my question is this: If we each filed single for 2000, would the IRS know? My wife's 2000 W-2 has her maiden name on it and we've lived together for a few years, so the addresses have been the same.I KNOW this is not legal or ethical, but I was just wondering if the IRS or Social Security Administration has any record of when people get married.Not looking to make waves, but just curious. Thanks.
