Hi,

you can claim marriage allowance if you are basic rate tax payer and your wife's income is below personal allowance.

"In principle, Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,250 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner. This reduces their tax by up to £250 in the tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year)."

I hope this answers the query.

Regards

HMAT
