How do I file taxes if my husband lives and works out of the country, but I don't?
Asked Nov 30, 2010, 08:20 AM
My husband and I got married this summer. He lived and worked out of the country all year, and up until we got married, I lived and worked in NYC. My husband does not have to pay state tax, but I do. However, I have overpaid for the year and should get a refund. The refund isn't enough that I really care about it if my filing will complicate things. Can I just not file (I am 100% certain that I have overpaid, even without any of the credits/deductions I qualify for), and if not, how should I file? I'm starting to think we should have waited until the year was over to get married...
