Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Since you have indicated that the divorce was final before the end of the 2007 calendar year, and the divorce decree specifically stated that the wife was responsible for all filings and all taxes on the business, then for the calendar year of 2007 the wife will file on her own as single (or head of household if it applies) and his name will not be on the return. The husband will do the same.
