Spouse W-2 with box 1 $0

I have claimed income but my spouse only made $500 last year. Her W-2 is basically blank besides local taxes. Do I still need to claim her W-2 since we are filing Jointly? I want to efile but if I include her W-2 it won't let me.

Yes, you need to include her W-2 in your jointly filed return. You are correct in that you won't be able to efile with a 0 in box 1. If this is her only W-2, try entering .01 in the Box 1 and see if that will allow you to efile.
