“What allows a spouse to claim the other as a dependent and how is the ‘dependent spouse’s Social Security income accounted for? What would be the filing status of the ‘supporting spouse’ [married, married filing separate, other]?”
You cannot claim your spouse as a dependent. Your spouse is your spouse!
It’s surprising how many people seem to have the same question you do.
To get an exemption for your spouse, you must use the filing status Married Filing Jointly.
If your spouse has Social Security income, you enter it into the tax software.
