I need to file my 2012 tax but I have problem finishing it because it ask questions about my wife she live abroad and we married in 2010. So when I change my statues to married then I have to give all income details of my wife. She never been in Canada now I have started her sponsorship application not submit yet but very soon I will. If someone could advice me. She has no employment income there. As far as I know who want file tax they should have social insurance number.

I think she can get a temporary tax number from CRA and this number will be use as the social insurance number for this purpose.

Unless your spouse is filing a return or applying for a credit, she won't actually need a temporary SIN.

If you did want to get her one, here's the form:

The CIC guides should always be your #1 source of information.
