Filing taxes; independently or with my parents?
I was just wondering whether it's better to file taxes with your parents, or file them independently. Or if there even IS a better. I heard from one of my dad's friend's at work that her son filed his taxes independently from his parents and that it made a difference. Then somebody told me that it does NOT make a difference, and that I should do whatever I want.
Also, I know that whether or not you file your taxes independently does not influence your "independent" status when it comes to filing your FAFSA (the whole thing with not being able to be independent unless you're married, in the army, etc.).
Does anybody know?
