What is a Innocent Spouse Appeal?

Is the IRS harassing you for your ex-spouse’s tax problems?

Innocent Spouse Relief is a form of tax relief that can relieve you of your tax liabilities, interest and penalties as a result of filing a joint tax return with your current or ex-spouse.  Filing your taxes jointly can provide many benefits – and sometimes it can create problems. When you are married and file a joint return together it means that both individuals are jointly and individually responsible for the taxes that are owed, even if one spouse made the majority or the entire amount of taxable income.  If the IRS determines several years after the joint return was filed that there was a deficiency in tax, the IRS is authorized to go after each spouse individually.

The IRS created innocent spouse relief because situations do arise where it would be unfair to hold a spouse liable for the tax liability that was created. Innocent spouse tax relief is available from the IRS and some states. It can relieve you from taxes, penalties and interest that were acquired from a joint tax return that you filed with your spouse or ex-spouse. The IRS offers innocent parties a way to get out from under tax debt liability that is the result of mistakes or errors not made by another party on a joint tax return. Innocent spouse relief is a good option for people who are burdened with tax debt through the fault of their spouse.
