Tax Relief – Innocent Spouse/Injured Spouse Claim
Filing a joint tax return has substantial tax benefits, which is why most married taxpayers choose to do so. A joint return means that the married couple is jointly and individually responsible for the entire tax liability and any penalty or interest accrued on the joint return, even if they later divorce. The IRS will hold either spouse liable for the entire amount of tax, penalties, and interest, even if only one spouse earned all of the income.
Innocent Spouse Tax relief
Fortunately, the IRS provides certain relief programs for spouses who find themselves in such situation. There are three types of relief programs available.
- Innocent Spouse relief
- Separation of liability
- Equitable relief
