My husband and I got married in 2011, and filed 2011 tax return jointly. He did not have any income in 2011, all income was earned by me. In 2008 he took a first-time home buyer credit and ended up not buying a house. I didn't know about it, and only found out when IRS sent a notice in his name stating that he has to pay $8,500 immediately because this is IRS collection for the first-tome home buyer credit. The notice came in his name and states that if he doesn't pay, IRS can levy his assets. I owe a house that I bought before we got married with my money. Currently the only property we have together is a joint checking account where I receive my paycheck. I also bought a car in my name and using money from my savings account after we got married. What should I do to protect my property?Should I take my husband off of the joint account now? Can IRS somehow find out that I bought a car after the wedding and can they possess it if it was purchased in my name and with my money? Also, we had a prenuptial agreement where all property purchased in marriage stays separate. What are the next steps for me to protect my property? Thank you.
