I have been trough a Divorce. My husband was to be responsible for all back taxes. I wonder if I need a lawyer because the IRS is coming after me for the back taxes also. I have filled out innocent spouse papers and have been relieved of some of the taxes. I still have to wait to see how much I will owe for 2014 back taxes. My ex hid all the tax information from me and was stealing money from my 401K. I owe over $12,500 and I'm not sure how much the IRS will hold me responsible for 2014 so far it's at 35,000. My ex was to pay me restitution for the money he too from my 401K and to pay me for all the things he stole from me. So far I haven't seen any money and I don't think he is going to pay me a dime of the money the Court order says he has to. I's struggling because of the mess he caused. Do I need to get a lawyer to help me with this issue I'm having with the IRS. So far I have just been having a tax guy from H&R Block helping me with the IRS. … read more
