Can I see if we would get back a bigger refund, if we filed married filing separate. We have always filed together

In order to compare married filing separate in the Online version you would have to create two return in two separate accounts.  Married filing joint is usually the better filing status.

You can get a quick idea of what filing status would be better for you by using TurboTax's TaxCaster, enter your information as Married Filing Joint, then enter each of your own information as Married Filing Separate
