Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. Yes, the IRS will keep any refunds if you file jointly. Until this is resolved, you will want to file separately. Also, in order to avoid any issues should there be a default in his installment agreement
, you might want to keep your finances and assets
separate until the obligation is paid in full to protect any joint assets and/or accounts being levied by the IRS.
