If you owe money to the IRS and then you get married, can they go after your new spouse for money that you owed prior to your marriage?

Yes and no. They cannot touch property titled in her name alone, or garnish her paycheck. However, they can place liens on jointly owned property, levy on joint bank accounts, and seize any tax refund due if you file jointly.
