IRS Tax Relief for Innocent Spouses

Resolve Back Taxes By Filing An Innocent Spouse Claim with the IRS

Taxpayers often find themselves in trouble with the IRS because of their spouses or ex-spouse’s actions. The IRS realizes that these situations do in fact occur.

If you qualify for innocent spouse relief, you may not have to pay IRS back taxes, interest, and penalties related to your spouse (or former spouse).

Once you file for an Innocent Spouse Claim, the IRS will send you a questionnaire for the purpose of verifying the validity of your story. Our expert team of attorneys, Certified Tax Resolution Specialists, and CPA's can help you through the process of sharing your financial information in innocent spouse cases.

IRS Guidelines for Innocent Spouse Tax Relief

If a taxpayer can prove they fit in the IRS guidelines for innocent spouse tax relief, they may not be subject to the taxes caused by their spouses or ex-spouses.

In order to help taxpayers that are being subjected to IRS problems because of their spouse's actions, the IRS has come up with guidelines for innocent spouse tax relief where a person may qualify as an innocent spouse.

If you had no idea about the financial activity of your spouse and how your spouse was manipulating the books, you can qualify for innocent spouse tax relief. This means:

  • You did not share bank accounts—you had no access to his/her account activity
  • Your spouse had a separate business that he/she operated independently
  • You did not benefit in lifestyle from the extra money that was a result of tax manipulation

How to qualify for Tax Relief As An Innocent Spouse

Our experienced attorneys or Certified Tax Resolution Specialists can help you file for innocent spouse protection and dramatically increase your chances for qualifying for tax relief. In addition to taking over all communication with the IRS, we will help you show the IRS that you meet all of the following conditions:

  • You must have filed a joint tax return which has an understatement of tax.
  • The understatement of tax must be due to erroneous items of your spouse.
  • You must establish that at the time you signed the joint return, you did not know, and had no reason to know, that there was an understatement of tax.
  • Taking into account all of the facts and circumstances, it would be unfair to hold you liable for the understatement of tax.
