Is there a specific reason why? Does your husband/wife owe back taxes or child support? If so, you would still want to file jointly BUT you would also need to file the "injured spouse" form. This prevents any entity from taking your expected return and applying towards his/her past obligations. To answer your question, IF married, no you cannot file as "single" you can however file as "married but filing separately, however if you really do not have a good reason to do so you will miss out on certain deductions and may be subject to a higher tax rate. Hope this helps
