My wife and I got married in Sept., 2000. Do we have to file as married for 2000, or can we file seperately? Basic answer:You MUST file as married, but you have a choice as to whether you want to file "married filing jointly" (MFJ) or "married filing separately" (MFS). Apparently, the general consensus is that it is typically better to file as MFJ, but you should run the numbers in both cases. I'm only repeating what others have said here on this board. I'll be facing your situation next year. I suggest doing a search here at the Fool to look up related posts for confirmation of my answer.Good luck.
