I’m not sure about the exact amount, but I believe if you made less than $6,000 last year you are not required to file taxes.  Therefore, your husband should not have to file.  

As long as no one else can claim him, you may be able to claim him, but if you claim your husband, your mom cannot claim you.

I’m not really sure about whether or not your mom can claim you since you got married.  The best thing to do is to go talk to someone at H&R block or some other tax professional just to make sure.

If you’re filing as married, I’m fairly certain your mom can’t claim you as a dependent.

You and your husband will either file jointly, or married filing separately.  You should ask a tax professional to see what makes the most sense for your specific circumstances.

Did you move to a new state when your husband started school?  If you did, you will also have to file as part-year residents of both states….

@dayl20:  File as married. Your mom can’t claim you as a dependant, you should get a bigger refund because you were taxed at a higher rate. Almost always, filing together is bettee, but Turbo Tax allows you to see it both ways.

If you claim zero dependants your W2 will say single, because the government doesnt allow you to be married and claim zero.  You can still file as married jointly/separately but your mom is SOL and cannot claim you now.  Your husband will not have to file

I’m as lost as you too. We have to find a good accountant as well.

@dayl20:  it’s totally worth the money to not have the headache, and to ensure you don’t mess something up and get a nasty letter from the IRS a year or two from now saying you owe them money!!!
