Can jointly filing spouses each claim the full amount of the exemptions?

Usually. Most of the enumerated monetary limits are per person, not per couple. Thus, each spouse may claim the full amount of each exemption. This is called doubling. However, there are some exceptions, the most notable of which is the homestead exemption, which may not be doubled.
