You will not be liable for the taxes owed by your future husband. Nevertheless, when you get married, if you file a Joint Income Tax Return, the IRS may keep any potential refund that you would otherwise have coming to you. This can be disputed, but takes time and effort. I suggest that you and your fiancee consult a tax attorney prior to your marriage. If you have further tax questions, see my web site at http://www.taxesq.com
