    The short answer is no.

    MO is not a community property state so none of the income or refund belongs to you.

    In your case the injured spouse rules would not apply because you had no income during the year. Since you have no income if you fill out a 8379 form all the dependency exemptions along with resulting credits would be given to the spouse that would claim them if filing seperately which would be your husband since you have no income and would not file a return.

    You did not earn any income so you are not entitled to any of it.

    You could fill the form 8379 out and file it along with the MFJ 1040 FIT tax return and then see what will happen after that the return is signed and sent off to the IRS sometime after the end of January 2013 during the 2013 tax filing season for the 2012 tax year.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 12/29/2012
