When Your Spouse Owes the IRS

Have you always relied on your spouse to prepare your tax returns?

Have you received a letter from the IRS about back taxes due that surprised you?

Were you aware of a windfall of income but your spouse didn’t tell you the correct amount?

If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, you may be able to get relief from the penalties and the taxes due by your spouse so that your credit is not ruined and you can get on with your financial life.

Relief for Innocent and Injured Spouses

The United States tax law includes a provision that can grant relief to people who did not know their spouses were misstating their taxes due. In certain situations, you can apply for innocent or injured spouse relief. (Injured spouse means financially injured, not physically injured, in this case.)

But you must qualify first.
