How should I file taxes if my husband is an illegal immigrant? 2 Answers as of February 06, 2011
Should I file my taxes as joint or separate with my unemployed, illegal husband? We are in the process of changing his status and I want to ensure I do this correctly. Thanks!

You can file separately and not be in violation of the law. You cannot take advantage of the favorable tax rules for married persons but you also won't draw attention to your husband's situation.
