Taxes and Innocent Spouse Relief
Palm Beach County Tax Lawyer
If your spouse or ex-spouse failed to correctly file a tax return, you may not be legally liable for the tax liability. Generally, when you sign a joint return you are agreeing to be responsible for the correctness of the content and any tax debt, however, there may be circumstances that relieve you of that responsibility.
Immediate Options Away from Liability
Filing for innocent spouse relief is a complicated process that requires a full understanding of all of the tax laws surrounding the situation. A Palm Beach County tax attorney can review the matter carefully and file for relief if you qualify. You must demonstrate to the IRS that you had no knowledge of the matter and no true reason to know that the tax return was fraudulent.
If the IRS determines that a criminal tax offense has occurred, being categorized as an innocent spouse will relieve you of any liability. Wage garnishment will not take place and no liens or levies will be imposed.
