" . .it would have ment at least anohter $1,500 in taxes."


Do you mean taxes you would have had to paid if filing jointly? or tax returns you would have
received."

They would have had to pay more. That's the whole thing behind the "marriage tax", because while I think it still benifits families with only 1 person working, it goes against families where both work. The idea is to make it fair for all, but all is quite a big group of people.

Luckily I don't have to worry about this for a while (famous last words :)
