If you are a joint account holder then they can attach all of the account. However, if you are just on the account as being able to sign (no ownership rights), then they cannot attach.

Can you word the response in a different way? I'm sorry. I'm not sure I understand. Attach? Thanks

It is possible to be able to sign checks on an account that is not in your name. The IRS cannot attach that account. If your name is XXXXX XXXXX account as an owner, then the account can be attached.
