If spouse "A" files a joint return with spouse B and reports its income on Schedule C as a self-employed individual, then the withholding from spouse "B" will be allowed to cover all taxes of spouse A, including SS and medicare.

IF spouse A is actually an employee of its employer, then spouse B's withholding can NOT be used to cover spouse A's Social Security and medicare taxes.
