Getting divorced or recently divorced? 

If you owe back taxes, there are some things you should know.

"Who pays the back taxes?"

It's not always so simple, and even when the divorce decree orders your ex-spouse to pay the back taxes, you can still be liable!

The issue is complicated...

Both divorce and tax professionals often get confused when dealing with joint tax liability issues. The last thing you want is for the IRS to come after you for money you didn't even know you owed.

It's more common than you think

We have all heard the numbers, and most of us are aware that about half of U.S. marriages don't last. However, did you know that the biggest reason for divorce is financial struggles? 

That means many divorced couples actually owe back taxes, and this is where things can get complicated. The IRS has many tactics for collecting from divorced couples, and will often go after one for everything when the other is inable to pay.
