For persons who have already filed federal taxes for the current year (FILEDYN) or who plan to file taxes for the current year (FILEWILL), reported that they will file a joint federal tax return with another person (FILESTATUS), and reported that the person they are filing with jointly is also a member of the Responding Unit (FILEJOINT), FILE2PID reports the Person Identifier (PID) of the second filer.
This question was asked as part of a series of questions about tax filing. Before being asked these questions, respondents were told it might be useful to have out some of their family's financial records, such as a copy of the family's tax forms or materials used to complete the tax form, such as yearend bank statements, financial summaries, pay stubs, W-2 forms, and the like.
This is a 3-digit numeric variable.
