I have a joint account but I have to file tax return separately. I am in the state of New York. Could anyone please kindly help me how the dividend/capital gain is allocated b/w tenants of the accounts? I desparately need this information to make some important decision. Please help!

Also, what happens to the Fool Tax FAQ? I thought there were a lot of things there but now there are only very small # of articles.

Thanks!

I think we need a little more information. Who is the joint account with - your spouse or someone else? Are you married, intending to file a separate return, or are you single?

I just checked and they all seem to be there. I think the techies at Fool HQ have been updating some things, so maybe you checked at exactly the wrong moment. Check again, and hit "refresh" on your browser if things still don't look right.

I forgot one important factor in my previous message:

I am married but have to file separately (by law). The joint account is with my spouse.

AND: I have no sale so far, only buys (thus no capital gain). Is there anyway I can transfer the account to under her name or split the account b/w us?

Thanks!

I responded to this just a few hours ago. You might want to go back and check my original post.

Huh? I thought there might be a problem with the FAQ area. But by my quick count, there are about 100 articles to be found there. So I'm not exactly sure where you are looking, or what you are looking at.

Click at the top of the page for the Taxes FAQ index, and you'll get right to all of the articles. Or you can go to the FAQ main page (http://www.fool.com/school/taxes/taxes.htm) and then check out the "archives" area. You should find all 100 or so of those posts there.
