    Answered . If you are still together as one unit, you two will have to work out the distribution.

    If you are apart and going through divorce, you have to have a divorce attorney assign a property settlement and to specifiy who gets the deductions.

    Its my understanding that Illinois is not a community property state but equitable division state, and a family law judge will make an equitable division in the divorce case.

    Good Luck

    Answered . I am assuming this is an IRS refund. Once refunded, state law determines who can make decisions regarding how the funds are spent. I suggest you repost your question in the family law section for your state.
