The government cannot come after her for personal income taxes you owe, BUT they could seize your share of any profits from the LLC in which you are a member. Thus, if you are listed as a 50% owner, they can seize your share of any proceeds from the LLC up to 50% of the LLC profits. If she hires you as an employee or even independent contractor, the government can issue a garnishment order, meaning she would have to pay any money she owes you for your work to the government up to 25% of your income after taxes. Also, if you have a loan agreement, the IRS can seize any payments due to you on that loan to satisfy your tax debt.
Overall, having them garnish up to 25% of your pay from being an employee is paying them less than them seizing up to your full share of proceeds from the LLC.
