I have some federal tax debt which was my ex-husband's and mine from a few years ago. I got remarried this year and my husband and I plan on filing a joint return for the 2012 tax year. After reading some of the publications in debt regarding what part of the joint refund the IRS can take toward MY debt (not community debt), I think I've found out that the IRS can take up to 50% of our joint refund (regardless of how much of the overpayment is mine and how much is his) to apply toward MY debt. But if he files Form 8379, will that prevent the IRS from taking any part of HIS portion of the overpayment refund?
