Cool quiz, but is there any reason you don't take the abbreviated versions for HOH and QW? I just made a tax quiz myself if you wanna check it out. Nice job
Nov 10th, 2009 at 06:20 GMT
I thought that I had put those abbreviations in because I use them frequently haha. I'll change it.

Surviving spouse should count for QW because thats what CPAs and auditors call it

excellent job...I tried "married" "married filing single" "married couple" "married with children" and "married but I regularly cheat on my spouse"...none worked...

My filing status is "Bent Over The Table" but does not appear as an answer.

No "It's complicated"?

Thanks for accepting MFJ and MFS

Do you remember the day you discovered Sporcle? If this quiz was featured the day I first showed up, I doubt I would have given it a second try. I feel sorry for all first timers today... it gets better!

Woo 100% in 11 seconds. My accounting masters degree pays off!

@dalheim you accepted jointly and seperate but not "widow"? A "qualifying widower" is a status you get only if you have a dependent and only for 2 years after your spouse's year of death (you still filed as married during the year of death). You don't get to file as a widower forever.
Apr 18th, 2012 at 04:08 GMT
3 years after your spouse's death, assuming you don't get remarried and you still have that kid (dependent), you file as a head of household, not widower.
Apr 18th, 2012 at 15:19 GMT
This really should have been (more) explicitly labelled "US" in the title.
Apr 20th, 2012 at 13:38 GMT
I think "widow" should be accepted.
Apr 20th, 2012 at 20:19 GMT
Why does the quiz question specify "and state?" These are clearly all U.S. federal filing statuses; most states don't have some of these statuses and some have different names for statuses (notably including domestic partners in the filing statuses equivalent to MFJ/MFS).
Apr 22nd, 2012 at 00:53 GMT
Yeah, I'm in a Registered Domestic Partnership in California, and this affects how I file both my state and federal tax returns. Please include this status, if you're going to have "widow". (See also, e.g. https://www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/same_sex_marriage/index.shtml )

gameboyguy13, my suggestion of married homosexual second class citizen as a bonus answer was deleted by the admins.
