Tax considerations after a divorce

People in Tennessee who are getting a divorce should prepare for a change in how they file their taxes. People with children or other dependents may be able to file as head of household while others must file as single. This change occurs for the year that the annulment, separation or divorce is finalized in, even if it is the last day of the year. If a marriage has been annulled, it will be necessary to amend previous filings since the couple will be considered to have been unmarried.
