Unless you and your estranged husband filed joint tax returns there is no way for you to "find out whether he owed taxes." BTW, the POA he gave to his sister died the same day he did. So if the two of you own any property together now is the time for you to get going and hire a probate lawyer.

I would suggest hiring a professional as tax matters are complex and nuanced.

Despite my not being licensed in Texas and not having researched this question under Texas law I am still prepared to tell you that changing your status as a taxpayer in 2019 and then trying to amend your 2018 tax return will not work. Why? Because you were not entitled to claim common law marriage...Read more »
We just received an audit letter stating they need to pay over $4500 on that surrender. I am assuming the loan company for the mobile home has sent something to the IRS (not sure what).

If you and your friend are in business as a partnership, you’d file a form US 1065 and give each partner a K-1 form to report items of income on your 1040 return.

Earth to taxpayer trying to appeal an IRS audit: You are dealing with the IRS. The IRS does not have time to argue with taxpayers over such silly things as the end date for completion of an audit.
