What is a "Tax Filing Unit"?

A tax filing unit is an individual or married couple that would file an individual income tax return (if their income is above the federal filing threshold). The tax filing unit also includes any persons who would be claimed as dependents on that tax return. A married couple/registered domestic partners residing in the same household are part of the same tax filing unit whether filing jointly, separately on the same return, or separately on separate returns.
