I was wondering if you could tell us about state taxes on MLP's.

Some. The most important thing to know is that every state is different.

I do not know if this is correct but I was told that some of the MLP's go through some states where you "should" pay a state tax on them.

Yep. That's correct. And it even more correct if you remove the quotes from the word should. As the late TMFPmarti commented, I get worried when people have to put quote marks around ordinary words.

Also, lets say that you are blissfully investing in MLP's and doing your taxes incorrectly. Could that come back to haunt your spouse on your "untimely" demise?

There is no need to wait for your untimely demise for the errors to come back to haunt you. It's all up to the enforcement arms of the various state tax departments to determine who they will go after and what dollar thresholds they consider worthy of enforcement.
