Proseries Professional has two features - in the Forms list is a MFJ-MFS worksheet which calculates (okay, not great) Federal numbers.  Also in Home Base we can (in the File Menu) split the returns.  both require you to out in T, S or J into each line.  Cannot answer about Basic options.

You can use the "What if" worksheet in ProSeries Basic. Go to the Forms Tab, then Find Form and type in What if.
