    Would appreciate any guidance or comments involving a married couple who is choosing to file “married filing separate”.
    Since they work and live in CA, which is a community property state, do they have to modify their federal return to show the income allocated to each spouse?
    I believe Form 8958 may have to be filed showing the allocation.
    Is this required, or can each spouse just put their own income on the Federal return. I believe CA will require adjustment, just did not know about Federal.
    Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks
