- From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click Federal. On smaller devices, click in the upper left-hand corner, then click Federal.
- Click Basic Information in the Federal Quick Q&A Topics menu to expand, then click Name.
- Click Continue, check I lived apart from my spouse the entire year (if applicable), then click Continue.
