    I forget the specific form that you have to fill out, but I'm sure irs.gov can answer that for you. If you are filing jointly, you can file the form to claim your half of the return. I'm not sure if it can be done at the same time taxes are filed or not, I only found out about it in the letter the IRS sent after taking my husband's return last year, but it is there. If you're not filing jointly then it shouldn't be an issue because it's not your debt.
