      We know that Form 8958 requires to split certain community income 50/50.

      What does happen if a 2nd spouse is refusing to  present his/her income to another?

      Liability is paid  properly by both spouses.

      Do I put zeros for the  second spouse?

      You can estimate what the income should be allocated to the other spouse. If you allocate community income to the other spouse you must notify that spouse of what income was allocated. Although it’s not correct, sometimes people will just report their own income and deductions. Remember that the community ends at the date they separated with no intent to return so maybe a portion of the year they may not have community income
