Why do I need my spouses SSN when filing taxes for my LCC? My wife doesn't own the LLC. Why is her information used by Turbo Tax Online?

If you are filing your return as married filing jointly and your LLC is a single member LLC, the LLC is reported on Schedule C, which flows to your personal return. So if you are filing as married filing jointly, TurboTax is asking for her information since she is on the joint return. She will not be on the Schedule C.
