Tuesday Tax Tip:

Innocent Spouse – Intro (Part I): When married taxpayers file “married filing jointly” taxpayers are unable to amend to married filing separately. The “married filing jointly” status results in both taxpayers jointly and individually responsible for the tax and any interest or penalty due on the joint return even it they later divorce. This is true even if a divorce decree states that a former spouse will be responsible for any amounts due on previously filed joint returns. One spouse may be held responsible for all the tax due even if all the income was earned by the other spouse.

The IRS “Innocent Spouse Relief” may relieve a spouse of the tax, interest, and penalties on a joint tax return. There are three types of relief available (defined in the Internal Revenue Code 6015). Part II will discuss the three types of relief.

Married persons who file separate returns in community property states may also qualify for relief.
