The cap on Social Security is individual, not collective.

So, if one of you earned more than $128,400 from more than one W-2 then yes TurboTax will adjust and you will see the excess SS withheld on Schedule 5 line 72.

If neither you or your wife individually earned more than $128,400, then you would not be subject to the Social Security Tax Cap.

Make very sure that you entered your W-2's under your own names so that you do not show excess SS withheld from only one of your names and end up in a mess a couple of years from now when the IRS catches the error.
