If your spouse is eligible for a social security number, you need to contact Social Security to complete Form ss-5 (Application for a Social Security Card), which is a Socia…l Security Administration form.

After a divorce a spouse filed the taxes as married filing jointly and kept more than 50 percent of the return. What are the options for the other spouse?
If you were no longer married at the end of the day on December 31th, you cannot file a joint return. The other spouse should simply file a legitimate return for themselves… and not worry about what their ex-spouse did. If you try to e-file, it will probably be rejected, but you should then file on paper. The first step is to file your own return, nothing can be done until you do that. Of course, the IRS will notice the discrepancy at that point and send you a letter. Respond to the letter with the proper documentation showing that you were divorced and your spouse should not have filed a joint return. It will take some time to settle and your refund (if you are due one) will be delayed for months.

Does a married couple have to file joint taxes if one is on Social Security and the other is on Disability?
It is possible for some of the social security benefits to become taxable on any individuals income tax return. Your question about the other being on Disability is not cle…ar because it does not specify what kind. How much, if any, of your social security benefits are taxable depends on your total income and marital status. Generally, if social security benefits were your only income for 2009, your benefits are not taxable and you probably do not need to file a federal income tax return. If you received income from other sources, your benefits will not be taxed unless your modified adjusted gross income is more than the base amount for your filing status. Your taxable benefits and modified adjusted gross income are figured in a worksheet in the Form 1040A or Form 1040 Instruction booklet.
