Outstanding Sales Tax Debt from an Ex Spouse

by Karen

How to handle an outstanding debt of sales tax, that has your name attached to it because of marriage. Now divorced, received a letter demanding payment of $21,150.00, from the Attorney General's Office, needs to be done within 10 days or they may garnish wages or put an attachment on my bank account. My ex has not filed a tax return for many years, & even though I got money refunded to me, it went towards this outstanding amount ($9000) of which has been paid. It states in my divorce decree that I am free & clear of all sales tax debt incurred while my ex was self employed. He signed it. I don't know what to do next?
