Do I have to give my husband, that I am separated from, my social security number for his taxes?

Asked over 2 years ago - Modesto, CA

I do not trust him as with this information, that he won't try to obtain credit using my social since his credit is ruined. He also would not give me his W-2 information so that we could just file together, so I see no reason to give him my info. But will we not be able to file without listing eachothers social?

    Answered . I am surprised he does not already have your social since you are married. He will have it on any past returns. The married filing separate income tax return requires that you provide your spouses social security number. He will not be able to efile without it.
