The IRS claims that I owe them for my spouse’s tax debt. Is there anything I can do?

When you sign a tax return with your spouse, both of you are responsible for any tax debt resulting from that tax return. That means you could be responsible for the whole tax debt even if you did not earn any money that year or if the debt is your spouse's fault. You may qualify for innocent spouse relief which means you may not have to pay all or part of that tax debt.
