Form i864a. Retired wife of uncle who makes 60,000, filed taxes jointly, her current income is 0 or 60,000

Okay, so my Uncle is my joint sponsor.  He makes $60,000 per year.  He files taxes jointly with his wife.  She does not work and makes $0.   

 

She is filling out form i864a as we were told to do, and it asks for her current income.  Would this be 0 or 60,000?

Assume the uncle claims $60,000 then his wife would be 0. They can't both be making $60,000. That would make their combined income $120,000

Thanks. 

 

I was under the impression that if you file taxes jointly with your husband, then you are basically saying that "his money is my money and my money is his money".

 

I guess I was wrong.

Since the incomes would be combined, it only makes sense (to me) that the wife's income would be zero......

That part is between the husband and wife. The tax returns just show who made how much money. It is still the husband that produced the $60k and the wife didn't produce any money. That doesn't mean she didn't contribute anything to the marriage or his money is not her money. Just who made how much. That's all the government cares. After that, who control the money, it's their lives

It might be accessed jointly, but the question is about how much the individual earns in income.
