INNOCENT SPOUSE

If the IRS is holding you responsible for a tax liability that your spouse caused, it may be possible to prepare an "Innocent Spouse" claim on your behalf so that the entire liability is not your burden.

Factors that would be analyzed include whether you are divorced or separated from your spouse, any history of abuse experienced during the marriage, whether or not you knew or should have known that taxes would be owed, and whether forcing you to pay the taxes would cause a financial hardship. The filing of the innocent spouse claim will also cause the IRS to cease their collection activity against you until the claim is resolved.

An Innocent Spouse claim is a rare form of tax relief and only applies to those taxpayers that have filed joint tax returns in which they have a tax amount owed and they feel the amount owed should be the responsibility of the other spouse. When a joint return is filed both taxpayers are held liable for the entire amount owed. With Innocent Spouse relief, the tax liability can be placed entirely on one of the spouses or it can be separated so that both individuals are not jointly responsible for the entire amount.
