The tax breaks (deduction for a child, deductions for child care, etc.) are the same for single or married.
Could you provide an example of these tax breaks that my wife (married) and I get that an unmarried couple doesn't get. These tax breaks must be unique to being married and not just the same break x2 since there are two people involved.
Because of our income differences my wife and I usually have paid a tax penalty for getting married.
Thank you in advance.
