I am Patrick T. Sheehan, a former IRS attorney. I wrote my second book, Divorce, Taxes and the IRS, to help people who are divorced or are divorcing navigate the tax and IRS side of your marriage. Not only are untangling and terminating a marriage, but you are also untangling and terminating a financial and, perhaps, a business relationship. Like it or not, the money side of your marriage is a financial relationship. Perhaps you have bank accounts together. Perhaps you have assets together, like a home or cars or a business. You likely filed joint tax returns together. Your divorce, in addition to terminating the marriage and dealing with the kids, also must address the financial side of your relationship, and that includes taxes and the IRS.
