Common law marriage

Decadewasted posted 7/21/2020 18:18 PM

I have a question and my legal aid office is closed so I wanted to reach out and see if any one knows, If I file to have my relationship recognized as a common law marriage backdated to 2010, Will I have to amend all of my tax returns which were filed as single for the past 10 years?

Tax status and relationship status are likely (please check with an attorney) two different things.

You were NOT married, so filing single is likely to be okay (please check with your attorney).

Common law regulations vary significantly from state to state, so you will need to get legal advice.

I doubt it. But I'm not a lawyer. State and Federal will obviously trump what I know. That said, why would they force you to do that?
