Divorce & Taxes: Filing Status

What is my tax filing status while my divorce is pending?

"Married persons. You are married for the whole year if you are separated but you have not obtained a final decree of divorce or separate maintenance by the last day of your tax year. An interlocutory decree is not a final decree."

Determine your tax filing status by consulting the IRS website at: https://www.irs.gov/publications/p504/ar02.html#en_US_2014_publink1000175820.
