Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello David, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.
Normally no, spouses have been separate for tax purposes for many years now. However, there may be a loophole, if either of you were born before 6 April 1935. If this is not the case then, regrettably, no loophole exists.
I thought that unused allowances from one spouse could be transferred.
It effectively can, but only if one or other is old enough and it actually not a transfer, but another allowance, Married Person's.
