Ok so my boyfriend and I have lived together for the last 5 months. I have a son from a previous relationship. I did some research and he can not claim my son and I as dependents because we did not live with him the entire 12 months of 2010, and therefore we are not qualifying dependents. My question is this. Since I meet the definition to file head of household, and my boyfriend meets the definition to file single, can this be done on two separate returns with the same address? I would file my tax returns claiming my son and head of household. He would file his own separate return, and his filing status would be single. This is correct?
My concern is because we would be submitting 2 separate returns with the same address. However since my son and I are not qualifying dependents, I see no way to file a joint return. Am I correct in the way its being done?
Anyone have any information on filing 2 separate returns from the same address? I can't find anything on this topic anywhere, it all relates to dependents and college kids, which isn't our scenario.
Before my sister and her hub got married, they had to file seperately. They lived at the same address, no problems there. It didn't delay their checks and that's what their tax preparer told them to do.
