    No

    Disability is no excuse for not paying taxes

    Of course not. Call them and arrange a payment plan - pay so much per month. You will have to pay enough per month to satisfy them. If you own a home, they will just likely foreclose on it, unless they accept a payment plan from you and you pay it faithfully.

    Being disabled doesn't excuse you from paying taxes you owe. There is something called an offer in compromise, where you do paperwork to show there's no reasonable chance of ever repaying what you owe - nothing specific for disability though.

    Yes. Your spouse needs to become a widowed. It won't pay the taxes, it will just shift the burden. If death won't take care of the debt, I doubt disability will. But good luck.

    If you are truly destitute, contact the IRS and ask for the status of "currently not collectible."
