Taxes


#1

Dear debblets:

Greetings. Sounds like you have a spouse that is irresponsible, no?

  1. If he filed for the taxes prior to your marriage, then no, I would argue they are a separate debt and that you are not responsible for any portion of them.

  2. Possibly. All tax debts accruing during the marriage are marital. I would suggest that you contact a tax attorney. Do you need a referral to one?

Question #1 Before I met my husband he had not filed his tax returns for 5 years 1992-1996. I filed them for him (still before we were married) and now he owes approximately $30,000 to the IRS and NC State. Am I liable for any of this?

Question#2 My husband and I separated in January of 2004. We do not have a legal separation agreement. He did not file a tax return for 2004 and has not yet filed one for 2005. Both years I file married filing separately. Am I liable for any taxes owed by him for these two years?

thank you
