If my husband owes thousands from back taxes And if I file married but separate and claim our 3 children, is the irs going to take my refund to cover him?

I didn't file last year because money was right. I'm only a year behind

A better choice would be to file jointly and file an injured spouse form to protect your share of any refund.
