Since you are in a community property state, it's pretty hard for you to have separate income. Not impossible, just hard. I write Ok. So basically our combined income will be considered "community", correct? Now, I am a little unclear about your above statement "If it's community income, it goes 1/2 to each spouse.". Does that mean if I have a cap gain of say $x for the year, I show half of it (my portion) on our CA return, i.e. $x/2? Or do I show all of it? I just want to get to the moral of the whole story here. Can I save anything at all or nothing?Thanks again everyone for their insights.
