I sold my business, money all gone, not working and IRS says I owe 16,000 personal tax. I'm just a handyman and caretaker for her daughter and 87yr Mom. I live with her 2yr and have one car in both our names with a 6yr payment. I've said I can pay $100 a month. What can they do?
Unless your name is on title to the house then the IRS has no lien rights.

I agree with my colleague; if your name is on the deed, the IRS can in fact lien it. See a good debt protection attorney for a more through analysis.
Hope this helps.
