My ex-wife and I have been separated since October, and she changed her tax withholding to deliberately underpay her 2012 share of Federal taxes to pocket more. As a result we owe about $9,000 and she is refusing to pay her share. Three questions please;
1) What precedent in CA law exists about her having to pay her share?
2) Can someone confirm that this would at least qualify as Epstein credits?
3) As I'm going to have to borrow money to pay shouldn't she have to help repay that loan and interest
I'm happy to do my share but this is totally unfair.

You don't change the amount of overall tax by altering withholding, you simply change the withholding. I don't know who told you that, but you have a fool doing your taxes.
