Divorcing couples should understand these 4 tax issues

Posted by Admin Posted on Oct 28 2020

When a couple is going through a divorce, taxes are probably not foremost on their minds. But without proper planning, some people find divorce to be even more taxing. Several concerns should be addressed to ensure that taxes are kept to a minimum. For example, if you sell your principal residence or one spouse remains living there while the other moves out, you want to make sure you’ll be able to avoid tax on up to $500,000 of gain. You also must decide how to file your return for the year (single, married filing jointly, married filing separately or head of household). There are other issues you may have to deal with. We can help you work through them.
