Iowa Dependent Allocation for MFS

Article ID: 59056  

Question
Can my spouse and I split dependent allocation if we select married filing seperately when we prepare our taxes?

Answer

Married Separate Filers - You may divide the number of dependents you claim between you and your spouse.  However, you may not divide any one dependent between each spouse.  Each spouse must claim his or her own exemption credits and may not claim any unused part of his or her spouse's credit.
