Litchfield, NH Newlyweds Wonder About Their Taxes
Once married, you and your spouse can file taxes jointly, which has a number of tax benefits. If either one of you makes significantly less income, this can lower your tax bracket and reduce your tax rate. Combining incomes will bring the partner in the higher tax bracket to a lower level, reducing the couple’s overall tax bill. There are also more deductions available to married couples filing jointly, including a higher threshold for charitable contributions and residency gain.
