Q. Is my spouse liable for my taxes, even if the tax was assessed before we were married?
A. No For the most part, the people whose names and income are reported on the tax return in question are liable for the taxes. Simply marrying someone with a tax liability does not make the new spouse liable for the tax. However, the new spouse can still be significantly impacted by the tax liability. While the new spouse cannot have their wages garnished, their household can be thrown into financial hardship if the liable spouse receives a garnishment. Also, if you have a joint bank account with your spouse, the IRS could levy all of the money in the account. Finally, in reaching a resolution with the IRS,they will consider the income and expenses for the entire household, including the new spouse. Therefore, you will need to disclose your spouse’s income, even though they are not liable for the tax.
