    Hi bigdaddydave,

    I am sorry that we don't have this option available at this time. We are always looking to improve our software, and I am happy to pass this request along to our development team to look at potentially supporting this in the future.

    If you wish to compare a joint return with a separate return in our software, you will need to use two accounts. In the first account, enter just your information on a married filing separately tax return. Create a second account to enter your spouse's information on a married filing separately return. Make note of the refund/tax owed for each. Then you would change one of the accounts to show the information for a married filing jointly return. Enter all information for both you and your spouse on this, then compare the results to the married filing separately results.
