After I'm nearly done with my return can I go back to the beginning and select married filing separately (instead of joint)

will it mess anything up? is it easy to switch back if the refund is lower?

Get your taxes done using TurboTax

Hi - yes you can do that, though it typically eliminates a lot of credits and deductions and is a worse outcome (More than 9 in 10 people file with married filing joint for that reason). Also note that to really compare, you have to create a separate return with your spouse, have them filed as married filing separate, and enter all the information for them. 

Hope this helps!
