“can i still file 'married filed jointly' on my federal and state tax returns?”----> You can file either married filing jointly or married filing separately. Or You can file your return as Head of Household under the Abandoned Spouse Rules. As long as you do not file a joint return with your husband, you paid more than half the costs of maintaining your home, your spouse did not live in the home durring the last six months, and your home was the principle residence of a dependent and you provided more than 50% financial or economic support for your dependent( if you have).
