Hi all,

DH and I got a call from the CPA last night who'd finished our taxes. We had two complex inheritances last year, so we figured a pro should handle it this year. Anyway, we were told that because we both have Roths, we are unable to file separately in the state of Ohio, even though this would save us 20% in federal taxes.

1) anyone else from Ohio who's ever heard of this one? I can't image how it would benefit anyone, from either end of the spectrum.

2) what kind of brown acid was Ohio's assembly on when they wrote this? Most arcane laws are years old and get contorted over the years, but obviously this can't be more than 5-6 years old.

3) has anyone with two Roths filed separately anyway, and if so, were there any repercussions?

Just curious...
