sole proprietorship and business tax in a community property state
Sorry to bother you. My ex-husband owes back business sales tax to the State of AZ (community property state). His name is the only name on the business license and he is still in the state as far as I know. Because they can't find him, and I was married to him at the time of the debt, they have placed liens against vehicles that are titled soley in my name. Can you give me options on how to resolve this? thank you so much for your time.

Re: sole proprietorship and business tax in a community property state
Your question is certainly no bother.
Can you find him? They could then collect from him.
This is not a business law question, but a taxation question. Please submit under that category. Attorneys who deal in "tax controversy" cases (that's the government trying to collect taxes from you) can help you. Or you could consult with a consumer attorney (bankruptcy) but that is a drastic measure. I do not know how much we are talking about here. Hopefully a taxation attorney on this site can help you.
