If you are preparing your tax returns together or simultaneously, TurboTax will calculate a "Spousal Amount" for you as your spouse cannot be claimed as a dependant. 

If you are preparing your returns separately when you complete the Additional Information for your spouse (in the My Info section of TurboTax Online), the calculation will be made based on your spouse's net income. Your spouse's net income must be below $11,809 in order to qualify for a spousal credit.
