I am separated with the STBE, since 2008, he is self employed, we have an 8 year old son, living permanently with me. STBE is self employed and has a lot of business deductions. As for me I got unemployment benefits for 3 months, last year. Should I file separately from him or together, I had my tax withheld from my benefits, does that mean I don't owe IRS anything? We didn't receive any stimulus check last year, so shouldn't we expect anything this year too?
I am just trying desperately to get myself out from the financial dependency on him. I what section should I post this question in? I will try current events, since the 15th of April coming up.
file married but separate. You should have received a 1099 from unemployment since you did not pay taxes. If you did not you need to contact them. You should have gotten a stimulus check for your child and yourself. It will ask you on the forms or online when you do it, or if you take it to a professional.
