question here is do you trust his estimation that he had no income. if you sign a joint return with him, and he underreported his income, you are as much liable as he is for lying on the return. you need to know if he really has no income, how is he covering his daily expenses. personally i would not want to file a joint return unless i was intimately aware of his financial dealings.
