Does anyone know how to enforce an ex-spouse in paying back taxes?? This is my Boyfriends situation. Him and his ex wife owe 30k in back taxes from thier jobs for the years 03,05.05 and 06 and he owes for 07. He called the IRS once to find out why she still gets her refunds every year (she now has a regular job where they take taxes out) Her amount she owes them is roughly 18k of that 30k and yet my BF gets letters all the time and they want him to send a payment arrangement but not her. When he asked the IRS how to enforce it they told him he couldnt do anything about it even though her name was clearly on the letters and the bills, I know we should get a lawyer but money is so tight as it is, we just cant afford that step right now,,,,,,especialy if its not going to be beneficial,
Even though we have talked about marriage its not in the cards until a lot of financial stuff is cleared up,,,,,,BUT in the event we do decide to get married,,,,i own my home free and clear, should we get married will the IRS be able to put a lien on or sieze my home for monies he owes them??
Thanks for any help,,,,,,this is all new to me
