Is your spouse dependent on you for more than half their expenses? If not, you do not need to “claim” each other. You just need to change your tax status to married filing jointly or married filing separately when you file.

No they are not dependent, that’s super helpful thank you!

It’s closer to what I studied, but don’t know how to make the jump as it seems an internal transfer could take 6+months/senior rank and a lot of convincing. Is it better to jump firms/has anyone done this?
