I got married on September 5th 1999. I was just told by a friend that I could still file as single on my 99 tax returns since I spent most of the year single and would not have to file as married until my 2000 returns. Is this true? Thanks.

Unfortunately I just found the answer myself and I am screwed. I must file married.

Is that not a description for all newlyweds. (:>)

I reply:

Congratulations on your recent marriage! Your friend is wrong. Your filing status is determined by your marital status as of December 31. For more details (including the rare exceptions, none of which likely apply to your situation), please check out the FAQ. --Bob

<<Unfortunately I just found the answer myself and I am screwed. I must file married.>>

Right you are...you'll file either married-joint or married-separate. No other filing status is available.

Congrats on your recent marriage. If you would like some additional bad news, check out my articles in the Taxes FAQ area regarding the marriage penalty.
