The only way that the IRS could take any property which you own is if your fiancee was also listed as an equitable owner of the property or asset
If you own your own home and put her name on the deed, then that property could be subject to liens
or seizure. If you have a bank account with her name and social security number added as one of the account owners, they can levy that bank account. When you do get married, you should avoid putting your wife's name on any assets that you jointly own until this tax debt has been cleared up.
Once you get married, if you file a joint return
together, then any refund which the two of you have coming would be held to pay towards any tax debt she owes. You can avoid this by either filing
, or you can file a joint return, but then you should also file Form
8379 as Injured Spouse. By filing that form the IRS would still send you the portion of the refund which was attributable to your income
