1. Per RCW 26.16.140, domestic partners "living separate and apart" do not have community property income during the time they are "living separate and apart." In other words, if I'm living in Washington and my partner must live outside of the USA for the next year or two, our incomes are considered "separate property." (p.s. Our partnership was registered in NV). Correct?
2. Also, for IRS purposes, the above-mentioned fact also means that our incomes are not taxed under the "community property" guidelines per recent IRS rules for domestic partners in community property states. Of course, as he is also a non-resident alien with no US source income there would be an second reason why his income would not affect my tax return with the IRS.
Am I understanding these two things correctly?
