Protecting innocent spouses from assuming liability for tax deficiencies
If your former or current spouse’s actions resulted in tax deficiencies, the IRS or the Colorado Department of Revenue may hold you to be jointly liable for this debt. Couples who file joint income tax returns have joint liability for each spouses’ income tax liabilities, which makes both spouses responsible for the total tax stated on the joint tax return . Regardless of who earned the income or received the tax benefits, the IRS can collect the liability for the full amount reported on the tax return. This amount can be taken from either spouse, whether they are currently married to each other or not, as well as from a subsequent spouse.
However, if a spouse can demonstrate that he or she did not know of unreported income or incorrect items when the joint tax return was signed, the IRS may grant that spouse relief from paying owed taxes. At Merriam Law Firm, P.C., we have successfully handled many “innocent spouse” relief cases. Please let us analyze your situation to determine if you qualify for innocent spouse relief.
