Can a couple who worked/lived in different states in 2014 file MFJ??
My question is can I do that or do we have to file MFJ for federal for the two of us and MFS for NJ for myself and MFS for OH for my spouse?
I tried both approaches with the software preparing a mock MFS federal return for each of us to use in creating the MFS state returns however I see that MFJ gives us the best tax liability rate.
We both just have W2 income and using standard deductions.
