Am I responsible for taxes my wife owes even if we are separated? 2 Answers as of November 02, 2010

My wife and I have been separated for about 10 years, but we are technically still married. Because she did not pay her taxes for last year, I owe the IRS money. I am trying to get a divorce, and I do not want to pay for her taxes, but she has been very uncooperative in providing me with the forms I need to fix the tax issue. How do I keep her financial problems from draining my wallet?
