What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NJ
My deceased husband and I both PA residents. His company registered in NJ.
Deceased husband's company was accused by division of employer accounts, NJ dept of labor and workforce developmentthat owned them 819 contributions on 2001, and accumulated interest till now is 1824.89. When husband passed away, company account left 3311 in it. Still in probate. Probate attorney said his company debt had nothing to do with probate.
CPA wrote a letter to them told them no assets left in husband's company. Then I got a responsed letter said that
" liability is not not automatically dismissed due to the death of employer, also there is a judgement on the account because of the non-payment which will have lien or any property you and your husband purchased. As for a business not having any assets, the payment is due whether from an individual personal account or money order. If your name is not listed anywhere on your late husband 's account, I would not concern myself about payment. I would be concerned if as stated previously property you have has a lien."
My question is
1 my name is not listed on my husband's company account, but we do have joined checking account. Do I responsible for this company debt?
2. If lien on the property( located in PA), I still have the liability to pay for it because the property is joint content, the deed with both name on it as husband and wife. How do I found out if lien on it or not? If lien on it, have to pay to remove the lien, right?
Tks for any help.
