I got married in August 2012, and tho all of my other documents have changed, i forgot to change my W4 from single to married. My husband changed his from single to married tho. will this affect us trying to file taxes together?

No. That just effects how much taxes are taken out of your paycheck. You can still file joint.

it’s only so they can take out the correct about of money from your paycheck. it won’t prevent you from being able to file jointly though.

My husband and I did the same – he changed his to married, I forgot. It’s not a big deal. As a PP said, it doesn’t change anything as far as how you file.

Thanks So much for the answers! I was about to go into a panic…

There’s actually a checkbox on the W-4 form that says “married but filing at higher single rate” that lets them take out more money from each check, but gives you a bigger tax refund.
It’s like an interest-free loan to uncle sam!
Which, if that’s your thing, I guess…

Nope. It just means you will get more back from the government.
