I recently (almost a year ago) divorced. My ex husband has his own company and my ex husband would not file taxes for at least 10 years while we were married. I was a stay at home mom and would work for him at home, but never received a salary or W2. He has no W2's either. What is best to do, file back taxes separately, married filing separately with no income, or do I need to fill in a portion of the income he brought in (we live in Maryland), or should we file jointly with a salary with no taxes due. I don't even know how much he actually made. I don't think there are any 1099's either. I need to move on with my life and consequently the mess that he has gotten me in and I just don't know how to fix this. We have kids together.
I think he has received letters within the last two years from the Fed. Gov. for not filing taxes for a couple of the outstanding years and he has ignored the letters. Why hasn't he heard anything else or even been arrested yet????
