To generate the MFJ vs MFS Comparison Worksheet:

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. On the left-side menu, select General.
  3. Click on Client Information.
  4. From the Filing Status drop-down, select 2=Married filing joint.
  5. Check the box, MFJ vs MFS Comparison.
  6. Using the primary input screens for income and deductions, indicate items that are Taxpayer, Spouse, or Joint.
  7. The program will apply community property rules based on the taxpayer's resident state. To override:
    • Go to General > Misc. Info/Direct Deposit
    • Make an entry in Apply community property rules: 1=no, 2=yes​


There is currently no feature to split an MFJ return into two MFS returns in ProConnect Tax.
