Does the State you are filing allow that option?

As @The-Tax-Lady mentions, you must confirm that the states involved will allow it since some do and some don't.  I have one that I was doing that for and I had a return set up for the joint return, and a separate return for the individual return.  So you are potentially putting in data multiple times and paying for multiple returns.  In mine, the taxpayer lived and worked in a state with no tax and the spouse lived in another state with a tax and didn't really have assets in her name, so it wasn't too much extra work.
