Did you know that you could get out of the tax debt due to the misdeeds or fraud committed by your spouse? Innocent Spouse Relief exists to alleviate unjust situations where one spouse is clearly not responsible for the tax liability created by their spouse or former spouse.
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 whether the spouses are still together, whether there is understatement or underpayment on the joint tax returns filed, and other factors that can effect mitigation.
