Help! I am running the numbers on my 99 tax return to see if the filing separately method will work for me. I know how to treat my income and my wife's income. What do I do with the interest, dividends, and capital gains from our joint investment accounts? Do I just split it evenly between the two returns? Does it all just stay on my separate return? Also, how do I enter all the Schedule A information? Is this also just split evenly? We have 2 kids. Can I put both of them on my return, or are the 2 dependents split- one on each return? Where can I go to get more information on this subject? Thanks in advance!
