Please pardon my ignorance about this, and please understand that I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes, but I'm nearly clueless about tax issues. What exactly is the "marriage penalty" or "marriage tax" that folks are talking about? I was married once before and it seemed I paid less taxes than when I was single. Now I'm single again (and appear to be paying higher taxes than when I was married), but contemplating remarrying, so I'd like to understand this better. Is it something that only affects a two-wage-earner family? With kids or without (I have none and plan on having none)? Above a certain income?I know it's off topic for this board, so if you want you can email me instead... but since this whole thread is somewhat OT I hope you'll indulge me. :)It's been a while since I've visited the boards, and I'd like to say it's good to be back :)Thank you,El
