If I am to get married will I be responsible for his taxes getting paid? He gets1099 and has to pay every year if he does not pay will the IRS come after me?

It is possible that you could be responsible. This assumes that you file a joint tax return with your new husband, and do not otherwise qualify as an innocent spouse under the tax laws. You can file separate returns from your new husband, and not be liable for his taxes, but filing married filing separate costs more in taxes than married filing joint. You will not be responsible for any of his old taxes, but could have some joint asset issues if he owes back taxes.
