My Spouse’s Problem— Not Mine
Did you know that you can escape the tax debt brought on by your spouse? If you are being punished because of the misdeeds or fraud committed by your spouse, there is a solution. Innocent Spouse Relief exists to alleviate unjust situations. These situations refer to when someone is clearly not responsible for the tax liability created by their spouse. They deserve no punishment for wrongdoing they had no knowledge of. So the IRS usually forgives the innocent spouse in situations like these.
This tax problem solution is based on a three-part set of rules encompassing Innocent Spouse, Separation of Liability, and Equitable Relief. The appropriate portion of the solution depends on each taxpayer’s situation. Considerations include the spouses’ marital status, whether there is understatement or underpayment on the joint tax returns filed, and other factors that can effect mitigation.
These rules exist to protect innocent spouses from exposure to IRS collection actions related to a spouse’s tax liability. However, they must contact your spouse or former spouse with no exceptions. But a tax resolution expert can help. If the IRS tries to collect taxes related to the income of a (current or former) spouse that you believe you should not pay, call us for a free consultation. If their actions seem unfair, this program may be exactly what you need.
A professional tax resolution expert can evaluate your situation and recommend the best course of action for you. They can also provide tax representation before the IRS or State and help you navigate through the process of tax resolution.
