Speaking from personal experience only and I have been doing taxes for several years for some small business owners; you will need to choose between married filing jointly or married filing separatly. The IRS doesn't care when you got married in the year. Even if you got married on Dec. 31, you would still have to claim married. You will probably get more back if you claim married filing jointly, but it depends on both of your incomes and what write-offs you both have. I would probably have someone do your taxes for you this year, if it is at all confusing to you. It is better to be safe than sorry.
