Question: Frances moved in with her mother Beatrice when Beatrice s health

Frances moved in with her mother, Beatrice, when Beatrice’s health started to fail. Frances cared for her mother as a devoted child would and never expected anything in return. When Beatrice needed to move to a nursing home, she legally transferred the home to Frances for $ 1,000 and “other valuable consideration.” The house had cost Beatrice $ 50,000 many years ago, and on the date of the transfer it was valued at $ 150,000. At the time of the transfer, Beatrice was insolvent, as she owed the IRS $ 250,000 in back taxes and interest for 1990 to 2008. A few months after the transfer of the house, the IRS filed a notice of federal tax lien for Beatrice’s unpaid taxes. The IRS has filed against Frances for $ 150,000 of her mother’s taxes, as Frances is in possession of the only valuable asset Beatrice has owned. Can the IRS collect from Frances?
