Can the IRS come after you if your spouse owes taxes? Yes, but only if you filed a married filing jointly tax return. The status of your marriage also dictates whether you’re liable for your partner’s back taxes. For example, if your husband owes the IRS money but incurred that debt before you became legally married, you’re not liable for their taxes.
If your spouse deliberately lied on your joint tax return, you can find relief through Innocent Spouse Relief and Injured Spouse Relief. You can also file a married filing separately tax return if you and your spouse want to remain liable for your own taxes. To keep your refund and finances protected, maintain open lines of communication with your spouse and make sure you’re open about finances. Taxes aren’t always a romantic topic of conversation, but it’s a part of being married.
