Married filing jointly, one spouse working?
Asked by: lpliskin
My spouse will be receiving a 1099 next year with an amount of $ 1800 as income. That is the ONLY reportable income he has. Is this considered “working”?? I.e., can I file “married filing jointly, one spouse working”?
We were just married this month, and I am looking at a W-4 and thinking about how to file my taxes this next year.
Sorry, I forgot he worked in a restaurant earlier this year, but no longer. Does that make a difference?
