Question
I live in Nevada and my spouse lives in California - we do not share incomes nor bills - do I have to show his these items on the above referenced form?  We have lived apart the entire 2014 tax year. Please advise. Thank you

Answer
for 8858 is about foreign LLC (or other disregarded entity)

i think you mean 8958 for community property.

yes. as long as you remain married, you do.    but it is just a disclosure form.  for the most part (dont do much community property returns) but, indeed, it is mandatory.  not optional.

are you not playing nice in the sandbox?  divorce imminent?

NOTE: My discussions are only a general information and do not constitute tax advise without entering into a specific agreement and executing an engagement letter; This free chat is nothing more than general information and should not be construed as tax advice nor does my response or replies imply an agreement to provide client specific advice or other guidance for purposes of avoiding IRS tax or penalties and should not be relied upon without your own validation and confirmation of the how the discussion may fit your facts... Not having all the facts and/or not having a direct client relationship prevents me from providing the most accurate replies as possible and I highly suggest using a local CPA to provide you with written advice and guidance. Taking matters into your own hands is much akin to trying to land an airplane without a license. It is easy to FLY a plane, but LANDING is when critical experience is key. In short, caveat emptor; do your homework and don't just rely on free chat board advice anywhere, anytime.
