Your spouse (or civil union partner) is also eligible for an exemption if he or she is a veteran and meets the criteria.
This exemption is in addition to any other exemptions you are entitled to claim and is available on both the resident and nonresident returns. You cannot claim this exemption for a domestic partner or for your dependents.
