Why does my wife owe for taxes

Two possible reasons:

  • She was underwithheld, and/or
  • Your combined incomes forced you into a higher tax bracket.

PS - Your wife doesn't owe taxes, the two of you do.  If you had entered her income first, then yours, it would have looked like it was you that owed taxes.
