When I got divorced, my husband and I owned a construction company, I agreed to relinquish any claim to the business as long as he assumed all of the prior tax debt to the IRS. Since our divorce, the IRS has seized my ban account, and taken my tax returns for the past 3 years, totaling about $6500 each year. I am a single mother, working and going to school full time. My income is extremely limited, and I really need my tax returns. What can I do to get this money back from him? I don't have the funds to hire an attorney. Can I file something with the courts to get him to pay me for the money that the IRS has taken?
I have not filed my taxes this year, just the extension, hoping that I could get relief from the debt due to hardship. My rental home was flooded by Tropical Storm Debby and I had to relocate, FEMA helped with some of my expenses, but my vehicle has was damaged in the storm and will cost more than it is worth, to be fixed.I was not able to borrow money from SBA (disaster loans) due to this IRS debt. My mother has been lending me her car to go to work and school, but this is just a temporary arrangement. I need acces to my money. I know this is probably another seperate issue. BTW... I have spoken with the IRS advocacy and I can not file innocent spouse.
