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.
