However, if you're in a community property state, the assumption that all of the taxes are your problem on separate returns is probably wrong.

Since they're not yet divorced (and likely won't be before Oct.) it only affects whether that 8K will have gone to the IRS or be part of the assets to be divided in the divorce. And community property state or not, it'll still likely get divided between the two spouses.
