Yes a spouse can file without the other...however..you must still report the other spouse's income on the paperwork including the means test (which determines if you can file …under Chapter 7)
Business bankruptcy? The other spouse will probably not be liable unless their name appears as an officer of the company. Personal bankruptcy? Yes, it will probably affect the… other spouse.
Spouse = married. Can't have one without the other.
If your spouse is eligible for a social security number, you need to contact Social Security to complete Form ss-5 (Application for a Social Security Card), which is a Socia…l Security Administration form. If your spouse is a nonresident/resident alien who isn't eligible for a social security card, then your spouse needs to fill out IRS Form W-7 (IRS Application for Individual Taxpayer Identification Number). The IRS then will assign an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to your spouse. Your spouse's ITIN then is entered in the line for "Spouse's social security number" on your tax return.
Can the state of Illinois take your social security if you and your spouse file chapter 13 bankruptcy?
The "current monthly income" received by the debtor includes regular contributions to household expenses from nondebtors and including income from the debtor's spouse if the p…etition is a joint petition, but DOES NOT include social security income or certain payments made because the debtor is the victim of certain crimes.
You can if you were married for at least 10 years, but not until you reach the age of eligibility to receive Social Security benefits. If you have been married more than onc…e, and if you were married to each husband at least 10 years, I believe you can actually file on the one which would pay the most. But you can file for social security benefits on only one person, whether it's yourself, or one of your ex or deceased spouses.
Yes, but the benefit amount will depend upon the surviving spouse's current income level.
Does the owner of the P.C. have to file a separate income tax return from his spouse if she isn't working?
A professional corporation (P.C.) might file as a single-member entity (sole proprietor), a partnership, or as a corporation. Each of these categories has its own specific inc…ome reporting form that has no connection to your filing status (Married Filing Jointly, Single, etc.). But you'd be filing a Form 1040 (U.S. Individual Income Tax Return) for non-professional corporation income, deductions, etc., and on your 1040 you and your spouse are Married Filing Jointly, even if your spouse doesn't work.
If you have a spouse, you may file a joint tax return with your spouse whether or not you have any taxable income yourself. In virtually all cases, filing jointly results in p…aying less combined tax than being married filing separately. And not filing jointly could make your wife ineligible for certain tax breaks like the Earned Income Credit or a Roth IRA contribution.
After a divorce a spouse filed the taxes as married filing jointly and kept more than 50 percent of the return. What are the options for the other spouse?
If you were no longer married at the end of the day on December 31th, you cannot file a joint return. The other spouse should simply file a legitimate return for themselves… and not worry about what their ex-spouse did. If you try to e-file, it will probably be rejected, but you should then file on paper. The first step is to file your own return, nothing can be done until you do that. Of course, the IRS will notice the discrepancy at that point and send you a letter. Respond to the letter with the proper documentation showing that you were divorced and your spouse should not have filed a joint return. It will take some time to settle and your refund (if you are due one) will be delayed for months.

Again, please consult your attorneys, tax advisor, and social security for detailed information and specifics. Ask about WEP (Windfall Provision) and GPO (Government Pension Offset).
Yes. Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits are not means-tested; if you qualify to receive disability compensation as an individual, your benefits will not be reduced by …another household member's earned income.
No. A widow or widower can only receive survivor benefits if the spouse was employed or self-employed, paid FICA taxes, and accumulated sufficient work credits.
Yes, the election to file seperatley or jointly is yours and able to be made each year.

Then in 2008the next year at …age 65 she earned $32,220.00. Social Security is trying to make her pay back over 8,000.00 for the year 2008. Why is she having to pay back.

Go to the Internal Revenue Service web page and use the search box for form 8379 go to page 2.
