So, as I jump to, thought I would post here for some of the best tax minds to opine.

Son went to H&R block to file his taxes. And got some advice!

He got divorced last year ~june - was definitely final by the end of the year. He and the tax professional filled out his forms and then was asked how his X had filed. When he said I don't know, the person said you have to find out. So he called her and she said she had filed married filing seperate??? Well, that was strange but when he told the H&R block person they said, well then you have to filed "married filing seperate"... Whiskey Tango FoxTrot.

I thought it was status on 12/31/XXXX???

Now if he goes and files Unmarried, which I told him he should, he is very nervous the IRS guys think like the H&R block winter intern.

What happens??
