Innocent Spouse Release allows taxpayers to not be liable for his spouse or former spouse’s tax deficit. A taxpayer may qualify for Innocent Spouse Release if he has issues with the IRS due to his spouse’s actions. Qualifying for Innocent Spouse relief can cause the IRS to remove back taxes, interests, or penalties acquired due to your spouse. However, the IRS has strict guidelines in regards to granting Innocent Spouse relief. In addition to other requirements, you must prove that you had no knowledge or participation in providing the misinformation of the taxes. A tax attorney can assist in preparing the documentation necessary in order to prove you had no involvement in the matter.
