It is a federal offence not to file your taxes. Is he trying to land you in jail? Is he willing to pay a hefty fine for you not filing. Did you know that you can file separately and it will not affect him. The only difference with a joint filing is a bigger return ( if your combined monies put you in that tax bracket) Next, he won"t let you vote.

Is he afraid of declaring "hidden" money? Everyone that works and has a s.i.n. # that is of legal age must file. Also, if you din"t file you can be losing out on many many benefits the Government might be able to offer you. ( Day care ect ect) Thanks

Married couples are not required to file jointly and there is no longer a penalty assessed for married couples filing single.

IRS and state tax authorities allow a spouse to enter an "innocent spousal" defense when it is applicable.

In this case, if the wife does not have a taxable income she would not be charged with tax evasion due to the fact that her husband refused to file.

If she does have an income and does not file her own return then she is guilty of tax evasion and an innocent spouse defense would not be valid.

Does a wife with no income have to file taxes with her husband?

If the wife is a student then she will have to file and the husband may be able to claim her as a dependent. To be safe it is always better to file either a zero return solely or as the spouse on a joint return.

A spouse is never a "dependent" on a US income tax return. You likely mean that you filed a joint tax return with your husband. You still file a joint return for the year of his passing. In subsequent years, you file as single unless you have dependents that qualify you for an alternative filing status.

How can your husband file taxes and include you when you are separated?

There are several ways. He can prepare a joint return and ask you to sign it. It is up to you if you want to cooperate. This assumes that you are still legally married. He can forge your signature on a joint return. This would be illegal. He can impersonate you and e-file a return. This would be fairly easy for a spouse to do, but it is also illegal. If you had absolutely no income during the year, did not file a return of your own, and could not be claimed as a dependent on anyone's return, the law allows your husband to claim your personal exemption on his separate tax return. Note this is not the same as claiming you as a dependent. (Your spouse is never your dependent for federal tax purposes.)
