What Happens to My Tax Refund During a Divorce?

If parties are still married at the end of the year and file their taxes jointly during the divorce, then in Missouri, all tax liabilities will be the joint responsibility of both spouses. Alternatively, if there is a refund, it will be joint marital property of the parties and is generally split between the parties or one party receives the refund and the other party is compensated with a different marital asset.
