First of all he can not claim you as a dependent.  A spouse is never a dependent.  You just file a Joint return for the 2 of you combined.  You get an exemption for each of you.  That's the same as claiming a dependent.

Then YES you have to report all your income (for each of you)  no matter how small.  Even $1 of bank interest you don't get a 1099Int for.  Did you get a W2 or a 1099Misc for it?
