DH now owes the IRS, can they come after me?
So as if my DH financial problems (caused by him) can't get any worse...last month he has paid me about $500 of the +$2000 he owes me since we bought the house. I immediately put it back into my savings. I was getting hopeful that his finances would be getting back on track.
Just last week DH got a letter in the mail from the IRS stating he owes them about $950 and they want it repaid by Jan 16th or they are going to apply more late fees and delinquent payment fees. This is from his taxes from 2014, he claimed 6 for federal/state during the month he received his annual bonus and it took him over 3 months to change it back. Somehow even though he owed, he was able to file his taxes from 2015--2016 and get a refund. I'm confused by this since he owed about $650 in 2014 why they didn't just subtract it from his refund the last 2 years. Now on top of the 650 he owes late fees and delinquent fees bringing the total to $950. We have only filed our taxes once since we got married and I was adamant that we file separately. We both lost a lot of our refund doing it separate but if BM takes DH back to court I don't want my income coming into play for his CS.
Since we have only files separate can the IRS come after me if DH doesn't pay it by the deadline?
