In 2007 my wife and I filed seperately because we were divorcing. I filed mine early in 2008, she never filed and has never filed since. NOW, in 2011, and she is 4 returns
behind. She has decided she will file for 2007 and wants me to pay 1/2 of whatever she will owe. She has not received any notices from the IRS
. This is something she decided she needs to do "just in case" We lived in Arizona at the time. We divorced early 2008 before filing
time, so I filed mine and never thought about it again. The income
she would have filed on was her personal retirement
funds or IRA. Not taxable until taken out, I think. I had no access to them, even if she was deceased, but apparently she is telling me I am still responsible for my share she took out for the tax
owed on them. She has not talked to the IRS, just a CPA. Apparently she will file this return and wants me to send her 1/2 of the amount that will be due. Since I filed in 2007, the IRS is probably fine with me because I always file. Do you think the IRS even knows she did not file a seperate return or even cares at this point, since I did? I have a new wife and life and the amount of money she is wanting is outrageous and I can't do it. I am retired military and own 1 car and 1 motorhome. She says they will take my retirement and autos if I do not pay her. I never got a notice from IRS and either has she. What is the best advise for me after 5 years? My new wife and I have items together and now we are worried about those things, since my current wife owned these items before I came into the picture. I know all about community state
and since we were married in 2007, but seperated, that all income is together, but in this case I left, she took out her retirement and went on her way and I filed, she did not and now here I sit. She has no paperwork to give me, no notices or anything in writing to share. I guess I need to know the right questions to ask. Thanks.
