What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
I am on H1B visa, my wife in on H4 visa (dependent on me). I claimed her as dependent on me for 2011 Tax returns and saved some money. She is planing to move to F1 visa for education. Hopefully, she will be on F1 visa in couple of months. So, when I file 2012 Taxes next year,
1) Can I claims her as dependent and save some money too?
2) Will her earning any income on F1 visa affect my and her's tax benefits?
3) Can I claim her as dependent on 2012 tax return and save same amount of money?(What if she is earning and/or not earning)
