I am a green card holder and my wife will get her green card soon , she already filed for it . I was wondering if we have to file for taxes together or do I have to exclude her ?
If you are married and living together you should file together. Why would you exclude her?

The law requires you to file jointly unless you have a good reason not to. Also, if your wife only has a conditional green card, not filing jointly now may create an issue relating to the bona fide nature of your marriage when the time comes for her to remove the condition.
