“Innocent Spouse” IRS Relief
You Are NOT Responsible for the Misdeeds of Your Spouse… If You Know What Steps to Take.
You’re in luck! The IRS has provisions for an “Innocent Spouse”.
“Innocent Spouse Relief provides you relief from additional tax you owe if your spouse or former spouse failed to report income, reported income improperly or claimed improper deductions or credits.” – IRS Topic 205
Under certain circumstances, you may be resolved of any misdeeds of a spouse or former spouse involving income tax fraud.
Most married couples file their tax returns jointly. There are certainly benefits to this, but if there were certain “errors” or “mistakes” on your joint return and it was your (present or former) spouse’s fault, you could be in luck. There are provisions in the Tax code that will let you out of a tax burden that was not your fault. But, it will need to be proven. We can help.
To ensure yourself the best possible outcome, it is best to take action as soon as you realize there is a problem.
We can review your situation and help you determine your options and file for Innocent Spouse Relief when necessary.
What our Clients are saying
I’ve used Hank several times for my business tax returns, and she does an amazing job every time! She’s always quick to answer my questions and knows what she’s talking about when it comes to accounting and taxes. I highly recommend her!
I am a writer/blogger and sole proprietor. Being a “word person,” numbers, especially related to taxes, are like a foreign language to me. Twice in the last six months, I found myself in a situation where I needed information related to my income and taxes—and at the 11th hour both times. Hank saved the day both times. She’s extremely professional, efficient and affordable. When I was in a panic about my situation, she was very responsive and assured me I would have what I needed in plenty of time. She was exactly right. I am so grateful to Hank for “saving” me from two NOT-good situations and will continue to use her for all things accounting.
