Assuming they were both over 65, filed jointly, and took the standard deduction, they would most likely owe federal taxes if their joint income was over $20,000. There are situations where they could owe taxes even if their income was lower, for example, if some of their income was from self-employment or they had not taken the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) on their traditional IRA or 401k. And many states have even lower thresholds for state income taxes.

Sure they can, as many as can be filed. There is no limitation as to how many liens can be filed against one piece of property.

It worried many Americans because they were scared that the country that they had just fought so hard for was falling apart once again because of debt and taxes

Poll taxes were not meant to keep the poor from voting, although that was a unintended consequence. Poll taxes were used to keep African-Americans from voting. What made the practice especially egregious was the fact that many Southern states passed laws that exempted most whites from paying the poll tax.
