Hello, I've been researching for an hour on the internet and the gold box and running out of time and steam.

Situation is simple...same sex couple married and filed to single returns for Federal and MFJ CA tax return.

Employer issues W-2C to correct the imputed tax on same sex partner health benefit.

Question is:

Can I just amend the single return and correct the wages with the W-2C? Nothing says that I need to also change the filing status to married filing joint or separate. No reason to since it doesn't provide any tax benefit to the married same sex couple. I understand on the IRS website that it is option for prior years.

Can anyone give a solid answer that I can amend the SINGLE return since I have a W-2C and call it a day?

Thanks!

It is a 2010 tax return so I'm running out of time.

I don't think you can. The tax benefit is clearly because they were married, you can't ignore that.
