someone else posted this earlier and my only advice is that if either of you have default student loans or any previously owed taxes do not file jointly they will take what you are getting back and apply it to what you already owe

It's almost always more beneficial to file jointly. One quick way to know is to go to TurboTax where you can enter your information & change your filing status with just one click. It will show you the financial impact with the two scenarios without transmitting your information.
