Ask A CPA - Divorce & Marriage Issues

Is There Any Tax Benefit To Delaying My Upcoming Wedding Until Next Year?

Generally, if you and your future spouse are both income earners and earn about the same income, you will probably save money by marrying after the first of the tax year. If one of you earns much more than the other, it is generally better to get married before the end of the year so you can file a joint tax return. Speak to your local CPA for details about this strategy.
