  1. The difference between them filing mfj and mfs is the tax owed. Husband had very little income as he was a full time student, therefore did not get benefit from standard deduction or nor was he get benefit from AOC. Wife will owe almost 7k in taxes before penalties and interest. If we amend, tax owed goes down to about 1k before interest and penalties. Why do people do this, who knows!
  2. Husband filed his 2016 1040 timely on extension - MFS and took the standard deduction. Wife has not filed as of 11.10.2020. Can the husband's return still be amended to MFJ to pick up wife's income? (His statue would have been 7/1/2020) Also, can they now itemize instead of taking the standard deduction?
