Suffering Because of a Spouse's Tax Debt? Let Tax Relief Attorney Brian T. Loughrin Help With Your Claim Today

Innocent Spouse Rule Claims

Are you suffering due to your spouse's or ex-spouse's tax debt?

While choosing to file a joint return can provide certain benefits, this filing status also renders you liable for any tax debt associated with that return. No matter if your spouse earned all of the taxable income or even if you later divorce, you can still be held responsible for the entire amount of tax due as well as any associated interest or penalties. Stipulating that your spouse is responsible for the tax debt as part of your divorce decree does not absolve you of responsibility per the IRS. You can still find yourself subject to collection action, including wage garnishment, if your former spouse fails to pay.

With the help of an Orlando IRS tax relief attorney, you may be able to remove your responsibility for taxes and penalties for which you believe only your spouse or former spouse should be liable.

A successful Innocent Spouse Claim depends on being able to prove the following:

  • You were unaware of any understated income
  • You had no reason to be aware of an incorrect tax claim
  • You did not benefit from your spouse's wrongful tax actions
