My wife currently not working and no income, so I only file my income tax based on my income only which is taxable. Now if my wife getting a job but the income is less than the taxable amount (e.g. 2000 per month). Will the income tax calculation based total housewhole income (my salary + my wife salary) or I can still file my own income tax separately and she file her own (which is not taxable)?
The reason I ask is, if her income is not taxable, then we are happy to have extra tax free RM2000 per month, but if her income will going to add up with my salary for taxation, then it is not worth to get the job.
