Splitting the Federal Tax Refund in a Minnesota Divorce Case

Blue Question Mark ManDivorcing couples in Minnesota often file their taxes jointly.  Splitting the refund can be dicey especially if the parties are not cooperative with one another.   The IRS Form 8888 titled “Allocation of Refund”  is a handy device that allows divorcing parties who file jointly to direct his or her share of the refund into  separate bank accounts by direct deposit.

Using IRS Form 8888 Allocation of Refund avoids parties having to meet at the bank to sign a jointly issued refund check or having the IRS deposit the funds into a joint account where either party may use more than his or her fair  share.
