The IRS for a change is right here. If the new IRS debt was issued after the divorce and was not mentioned in the MSA, you and the respondent would have to go back to the court to go back and review liability for the new debt. Just because you agreed to take on all of the debt existing at the time of the MSA, if this debt was unknown at the time and did not exist, then it is not covered by the MSA and in order to resolve this one you have to mediate the dispute and come to a new agreement on this or you have to go back to court to get the court to decide how this debt will be handled.
