If you don’t want to finish your partner’s return before filing your own, or they have already filed using another method, you must unlink your returns. As a result, we won’t be able to optimize your and your partner’s returns to maximize your refunds.
To unlink your returns:
- in the About You section, change the answer to Do you want prepare your returns together? to No and confirm that you will unlink
- enter the necessary information in the Your Partner section (or indicate that you won’t report your partner’s income)
- go through any shared sections you previously added and delete any amounts that you won’t claim, then do the same thing for your partner on their return
You cannot unlink your returns if one partner has filed.
