Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
If the debt is joint the IRS will go after both of you until the debt is satisfied, regardless who pays, how much or how long. It will not split your liability in half and only collect fair share from you. Divorce decree has no power over the IRS. You can sue her in civil court for her share tax liability IRS took from you.
