If both you and your husband owe a debt, the creditor can garnish the pay of either or both of you, limited only by state law. However, the IRS isn't bound by the laws where you live because they are, well, the IRS.
Bankruptcy can provide for a way to resolve back taxes in an orderly and affordable way. I suggest you contact a local attorney specializing in bankruptcy for further info. Hope this perspective helps!
Yes. You can both be garnished up to the maximum allowed by your state if you are liable on a judgment or tax debt.
