Owing the IRS


#1

My husband owes the IRS over $17,000 from previous years taxes when he was part owner of a mortgage company. This was a debt he had before we married 3 years ago. I file my taxes separate from him, but will I still be held responsible because he isn’t paying as he agreed to do with the IRS months ago. He is currenly unemployed, does not receive unemployment. Everything we own is in my name. Can the government come after my home, etc. The mortgage loan is solely in my name and he isn’t listed on the deed of the home. Please advise, I’m very concerned. Many Thanks.

The IRS cannot take what is yours based on your husband’s separate debt.
