And directly to your comment - with 1/2 of the tax and 1/2 of the withholding on each return, whatever balance is due would become 1/2 her problem. He could meet his tax obligation by filing a return and paying whatever he separately owed. The balance of the tax obligation would be hers and her problem.

I like it. I'll file the extension for now, then prepare a joint return. And if she won't sign, this approach is a fall back.

I hope it won't come to that. While things have gotten really rough this year, I'm hoping that when she's faced with issues like this she'll finally consider counseling.
