My marriage occurred September 1999, divorce was final December 13, 2000. I had a lot of expenses that I could have claimed for last year (1999) that I was not able to with my wife having filed claiming the standard deduction, forcing me to do the same. I did figure that if we had filed jointly, we could have gotten a refund of $900.00, but I ended up having to pay over $500.00 because of the capital gains that I had for 1999. My 1998 AGI was $19950, for 1999 it was $28785 with the capital gains, and would have been around $21000 without the capital gains. In 1998 I had $9585 in itemized deductions, and could have claimed about the same for 1999 but was only able to claim $1413 with how the filing was done. My 1998 tax liability was $1151, for 1999 it was $3101, almost triple the 1998 liability.Jackson Andersen
