My divorce decree states we are to divide the 2008 taxes we owed 50/50. I began an Offer in Compromise when we first separated although it did not became final until after the divorce. I paid the offer in one lump sum so the tax lien on our home would be released so I could sell it before it foreclosed. The offer was accepted but it was to late the house was foreclosed. The IRS has now gone after him for the full amount of the 2008 taxes. He has obtained an attorney and they are coming after me for half. Can he do that even though I did my part by contacting the IRS and getting an offer? He could have done the same however he evaded them until they started garnishing his wages. He new they were trying to contact him. What should I do?
