I hope someone with Texas returns experience can help me with this. I have a client who wants to file MFS. The couple lives in Texas. For Texas is a Community Property State, the earnings (w2) need to be split up 50/50. The software that I am using does not have specific data entry screens to divide earnings. Form 8958 is prepared and attached manually, which is not an issue. But I am not sure how to split the wages. The tax support representative suggested that I use the same data entry screen that we ordinarily use, except split all wages and deductions 50/50. So there will be two w2 entries instead of one. Any comments.
