Question
Utah Nonresident Spouse Limit

Answer
General Information
When a husband and wife file a joint federal return, they would normally be required to file a joint Utah return. However, when one spouse is a full-year Utah resident and the other spouse is a full-year nonresident of Utah, the Utah resident may file a separate return using these Special Instructions.
If either spouse is a part-year Utah resident, the couple cannot file using these Special Instructions, but must prepare their Utah return using the same filing status as on their federal return.
Who May Use Special Instructions
A married person and his or her spouse may only use these Special Instructions if one of them is a full-year Utah resident and the other is a full-year nonresident of Utah.
