Innocent Spouse Relief

When a married couple files a joint return, they are both responsible for ensuring its accuracy and for the payment of any taxes owed. That means that the IRS can collect the entire amount of tax, interest, and penalties from either spouse.  In some circumstances, you may be able to use innocent spouse relief or other similar relief to avoid paying taxes or penalties due to your spouse making errors or committing fraud when filing the return, thus getting relief from the reasonability of having to pay for their mistake.  Contact us today to see if you qualify for one of these relief options.
