Can one spouse take entire property tax and mortgage deductions in community state (California) ?
First time, we are filing married filing separately status . somewhere I read that for community state - california, both the spouses have to take 50-50 deductions . Is it compulsory to take 50-50 ? can one spouse take 100% deduction of property tax and mortgage and another spouse take 0 ?
Is there a step-by-step guide with examples of married filing separately ?
