HOW CAN YOU QUALIFY FOR INNOCENT SPOUSE TAX RELIEF?

Innocent Spouse Tax Relief is an IRS program that can relieve you from paying taxes if your spouse understates taxes due on your joint tax return and you didn’t know about the errors.

Innocent spouse relief is for taxes due on your spouse’s income from employment or self-employment. You can’t claim relief for taxes due on your own income, household employment taxes, individual shared responsibility payments, business taxes or trust fund recovery penalties for employment taxes.

To qualify for innocent spouse relief, you must have filed a joint tax return with your spouse, and your taxes were understated due to errors on your tax return that you didn’t know about and you live in a community property state.

There are several types of innocent spouse relief available, including, Classic Innocent Spouse Relief, Separation of Liability Relief and Equitable Relief. If you want to learn more about Innocent Spouse Tax Relief, please contact us for your free consultation
