Question

Does my federal Form 8379: Injured Spouse Allocation apply to my state return in addition to my federal return?

Answer

Each state, as some states fall into the community-property state category, treats the injured spouse allocation differently, which will affect refunds.

Visit your state’s web site for further information on how your state handles injured spouse state taxes and review an injured spouse tax form. To find your state’s website, visit www.irs.gov.
