I'm a full-time college student and am getting married December 31, 2012. How will this affect us when it comes to taxes? Since we are both full time students, our respective 2012 incomes will be around $8000 and $4000. If our parents will not be eligible for claiming us as dependents, we will probably sign the marriage licence January 1, 2013.
I know if we file jointly we cannot be claimed as dependents, but if we file separately, can we still be claimed as dependents?
