A quick definition of joint tax return:

Joint tax return: A joint tax return is a single tax form that a married couple fills out together. They report their combined income, credits, exemptions, and deductions. This is only allowed if the state they live in recognizes their marriage as legal.

A more thorough explanation:

A joint tax return is a single tax return filed by a married couple. This filing status is called "married filing jointly." The couple reports their combined income, credits, exemptions, and deductions on this return.

It is important to note that a couple can only file a joint tax return if they are legally married and their state recognizes their marriage.

John and Jane got married in 2020. They decide to file a joint tax return for the 2020 tax year. They report their combined income, deductions, and credits on this return.

Another example is if a couple got married in 2019 and filed a joint tax return for the 2019 tax year. They can also file a joint tax return for the 2020 tax year as long as they are still legally married and their state recognizes their marriage.

These examples illustrate how a joint tax return works for married couples. They report their combined financial information on one tax return instead of filing separate returns.

@OptimisticOutlier That sounds terrible, I'm sorry you had to experience that lol. Can I ask what made you feel uncomfortable? Like the sketchy vibes of the city or like the camp\us itself etc.?

campus
penn is in a nice area
right next to drexel
it was campus itself, honestly i can't explain what it actually is. I felt the same way when I was touring schools for undergrad, pretty much pulled up to upenn and told my mom i knew i didn't like it and didn't need to take the tour lol
would argue with the nice area piece lol i think all of philly is kinda scary, someone pulled a gun on my team while we were down for a football game at upenn and walking around at night
but that said, i'm pretty happy i moved to pa after school and i know lots of people love upenn!
dear god is that sketchy
definetly safer than how its being described
people are absolutely crwzy
yeah yeah will 10000% agree i've had like bad outlier experiences lol
