It's not a tax deduction, it is the the withholding tax is bases on the joint income and if one loose a job the withholding rate comes down.
I said reduction, not deduction. But, yes this is what I'm referring to. According to Tom I speak with my employer about lowering my withholding so I'll try that.

My spouse unfortunately worked 11 months for a Swiss company so is not eligible to RAV as I understand it. They are looking like crazy for something else but they don't speak German and have a niche background, so it may take quite some time.
