    I gave up decades ago and only file the 1040 EZ. I probably have some deductions I could use, but since I only have one income stream, I don't bother with those deductions.

    I admire anyone who files a more complicated tax form.

    And you're right, if it nets you a larger refund, you should be able to file married - separately or jointly.

      If it was a matter of doing some tax return gymnastics to get the largest return, that would be one thing.  But the 4 returns are mandated by the disparity between state and federal law.  
      Our basic tax forms are not difficult--just W-2's, and a Schedule C for me.  But doing them 4 times over is no walk in the park.
