If you, or your husband owes more than $5000 in back taxes, or in child support or student loans (since the IRS will seize any refund to pay these debts), then they can try to put a lien against your home.
The fact that he waived any rights to your home, if not in writing and recorded with the County Clerk where you live, won't stop any liens. When you say that he waived his rights, does that mean that only your name is ***** ***** deed? Did he give you a quit claim deed?
Seizing your residence requires a court order. If the IRS threatens to do so, contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service immediately. Please see below:
Offer to make arrangements to pay the taxes owed. A second home or vacation place, can be levied without a court order.
