Is it legal for the IRS to put a lien on a joint bank account? 2 Answers as of August 18, 2011
For more than 10 years I have filed taxes separate from my husband. He now owes the IRS money, and even though he has individual bank accounts and assets, the IRS placed a lien on our joint bank account. Is that legal? If it isn't, what recourse do I have?

Yes, it is legal for them to do that. You should not have any joint accounts with your husband for as long as he has this ongoing problem.
