Hello everbody.

I have been a LPR since February 2008 (10 year card holder), I am assuming I will be able to apply this November for Citizenship after 5 years. My problem is that my husband has been filling out taxes jointly, I have had not income. It came out that we owed taxes from 2008 and I just don't know what to do since my husbands claims that there was and "error" and we should have not had any debts, because he claims they did not count all of the paperwork he presented about high medical costs he had. This is something I do not understand completely since he is the one always filling these papers. Now I want to apply for naturalization and he says he is still wanting to have these "reviewed". For my understanding is that I need to have a payment plan and payments made so I can fill my N-400 form. I am wondering if I will have to start to pay for payment installments based "on my part of the debt"?....

If you have not paid all your taxes for past years or not had an agreement with the IRS to pay them in installments, you cannot be naturalized. There is no going around this. the one thing that will be asked of any applicant is tax returns for prior years and if there is even a cent owed, it will put your case on hold until a satisfactory document is provided to have cleared all dues or an agreement to pay which has been approved by the IRS.

Yep. You have to be current with all filings, and if you still owe money, have an installment agreement in effect (all money owed must be paid back within the term of the installment agreement, and all new obligations have to be paid on time).
