Thank you for this.

Were you collecting any benifits?

Expert:  Mo Tax Expert replied 15 days ago.

Ok, in that case, you would have to arrange a payment plan to settle this debt.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
This means that after 15 years I have to pay for money that came to my ex mine's account ?
Expert:  Mo Tax Expert replied 15 days ago.

Usually, if your name its on the letter it is your obligation to pay.

Alternatively you could give them a call to dispute it and explain the circumstances.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
There is no statute of limitations after 15 years ?
Expert:  Mo Tax Expert replied 15 days ago.

Not with the government im afraid.
