You will enter the required information about your spouse in the Tell Us About Your Spouse page. We collect your spouse’s name, social security number, date of birth, and occupation. We also collect information that will tell us if your spouse is eligible for certain credits and deductions. We keep it as simple as possible. Be sure to enter your spouse’s information correctly. Certain items, like name, date of birth, and SSN will cause your return to reject if entered incorrectly.
