Deciding between filing income taxes jointly or separately

A Florida couple with significant assets might rely on tax experts to determine the best approach to filing federal tax returns. However, those who prepare their own taxes might wonder if filing separately has any advantages over filing jointly. Married couples, including same-sex couples, must use one of these two designations. Meanwhile, those who are in domestic partnerships or civil unions may not use these designations when filing. In most cases, there is a greater financial benefit in filing jointly.
