My spouse was unemployed for the entire year. Should we file a joint return? If we do, can I still claim him as a dependent?
My husband had no income in 2012. aI want to know the best route of these options: 1. File a joint return and NOT claim him as a dependent. 2. File a joint return and CLAIM him as a dependent. 3. DO NOT file a joint return and CLAIM him as a dependent. If the latter is the best option, would he even need to file a separate return? He does have student loan interest to claim, but no income.
