In this episode, Melissa Fradenburg, Financial Advisor, RJFS and Jamie Wilkerson Majni CPA, discuss the common tax issues and considerations in divorce. With over 20 years of experience as a CPA and experience going through her own divorce, Jamie knows there are a lot of financial changes through the process. While it can be daunting to face these changes, especially if you were not the one filing taxes in your marriage, our goal in this episode is to break down the main issues you should address if going through or recently divorced.
We will discuss:
- How to determine your filing status?
