Ask the taxgirl: Getting Married When a Tax Liability Exists


Taxpayer asks: Hello, I have a question please: If a person owes the IRS back taxes and wants to marry, is the other person affected when it comes to filing taxes jointly? Thank You. Taxgirl says: The short answer is no. Your personal federal income tax liability generally remains your own personal federal income tax liability even after you are married to another person.
