I'm a bit lost when it comes to taxes, and I've heard from a few sources that one cannot list their spouse as a dependent.
However, my wife and I got married in October last year, and she has lived with me for the entire year. She did not have any income for the year, so from January to October, I should be able to list her as a dependent, correct?
I've tried different ways of adding this situation to TurboTax, but it seems as if it's an all-or-nothing deal; and since we got married, I can't claim her as dependent for any part of the year.
Am I overlooking something? Is it possible to add her as a dependent? If so, how can I correctly do it? Or is this just a bad idea to add her as a dependent altogether?
