I recommend taking a look at her transcripts for the years that were SFR’d to determine if she had any federal taxes withheld on her income. If so, then there’s a possibility that filing an original tax return could possibly reduce her tax liability since the IRS doesn’t factor in credits and withholding on SFR tax returns.
You can certainly request to have the case transferred back to the IRS. Since the debts occurred prior to her being married (and provided there’s no current joint debt), you can consider conducting a split financial analysis to determine her ability to pay based on her percentage of their joint income and expenses.
