I can't locate my husband, we haven't been talking much lately. and now he's not responding to my messages, emails, calls. I'm a student, and paid $3,000 for my tuition on Dec 26, 2011 and would like to deduct it or receive the Opportunity Credit.
Turbotax informed me I wasn't eligible as I was filing married but separately.
Well, what can I do if my husband lives 600 miles away, and is not responding?
We agreed to file for divorce this coming March, but I need to file before then in order to get financial aid for the next school year.
Any relevant advice would be appreciated.
Thank you!We haven't lived together for over a year actually. And it can be legally proven - he's permanently in San Diego (military), and I have been in school in Los Angeles, then Berkeley. Turbotax says I have to file married if I"m still legally married, or even if I didn't live with my husband. I'd rather file as single, of course. Where can I find the law that tell me I can file as single if we haven't lived together for 6 months? Thank you so much for your answer!
