It is possible, but more facts are necessary. There is personal liability for the payroll taxes that may extend to you and your husband, and perhaps others. Moreover, if you just created a new company to take the old company's assets and change the name, that could lead to liability. Certainly, you should have done all this with legal and accounting advice.
