My X texted me a vague comment about my taxes since we split. They are fine. I've been filing 'married but filing separately' he knows this.
I knew from past conversations that he was seeing an accountant because he was having problems. Apparently the accountant has told him its so bad he could face jail time.
Here's my concern. We JUST finalized our D and signed the papers in August. I don't know if he has filed in the last 5 years since we separated. I don't know what he has filed if he has filed. Can this bite me?
Here's what I do know. I filed the taxes for him for year 2008. I made an error - they IRS came after him and garnished him for the error. Its paid.
I do not know and did not file for him after 2008. We have always filed separately. I was recently audited and will owe the IRS a chunk of change but I'm working with them on it.
He won't answer any questions w/o dancing around the real answer. Am I going to be liable for him if he is in really big trouble??But that's just a lot of water
