What you may not realize is that you can also amend your taxes from past years—and TurboTax has a calculator that tells you how much you'll get back.P Last year, the Supreme Court ordered that the federal government must recognize same-sex marriages. Not only can you file your taxes jointly as a couple, but you can optionally re-file past tax returns from when you were married (but weren't recognized as such by the federal government). P Married couples will have to file as married couples (either Married Filing Jointly or Married Filing Separately) for 2013. However, for the tax years of 2010, 2011, and 2012, you have a choice. Couples can leave their taxes the way they are, or amend them if it would be advantageous to do so. For couples married at any point in 2010, the clock for amending could run out on April 15th, so it's important to get that amended return in soon if it's in your best interest. Note this is independent of your state return as different states have different rules regarding accepting amended returns.P Not sure if you should amend? TurboTax has a handy calculator to help you figure that out and will even help you file it. Personally, my husband and I amended 2010 and are looking forward to a decent refund. Check out the calculator to see if it'd be worth it for you. 3 Steps To Join #FowlerNation! 1. Subscribe To The Fowler Show: http://bit.ly/SubscribeFowlerNation 2.
