For a number of reasons some married couples want to file their tax returns separately. Usually that means they have to file their individual tax returns as “married filing separately.” Unfortunately, filing that way causes them to lose certain valuable tax credits.
However, there is a way they can file as “Head of Household” and keep those credits. In this TaxAssurances YouTube video I walk through those options.
Also, here is a helpful IRS website that provides more guidance for couples that want to file their tax returns separately but still keep valuable tax credits: https://www.irs.gov/publications/p504#en_US_2019_publink1000175861
