Joint filer is a member of responding unit


For persons who have already filed federal taxes for the current year (FILEDYN) or who plan to file taxes for the current year (FILEWILL), and who reported that they will file a joint federal tax return with another person (FILESTATUS), FILEJOINT indicates if the person they are filing with jointly is also a member of the Responding Unit.


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.
