Can you please explain what amounts get slit 50/50 when a couple is married in community of property please? My husband is retired and I am the breadwinner. We receive rental and interest. Also what to do with the medical expenses, both membership & additional, in my name only?

Both rental and interest will be split if you are married COP. If the medical is in your name only then you will need to claim this deduction/credit.
