If the IRS is coming after you for tax debt that started when you filed a joint return with a spouse, and you don’t know WHAT your spouse (or then-spouse) did, Tax Defense Partners encourages you to call to see if you qualify for innocent spouse relief. What will matter is whether you knew about your spouse not reporting income, or taking improper deductions – or even if you knew about the income not reported, whether you knew where the income came from. Your case will hinge on gathering the right facts, structuring them into a valid case, and presenting evidence to prove your assertions, something better done with the help of competent professionals like Tax Defense Partners.
When you sign a tax return to file jointly with a spouse, yes, the IRS holds BOTH of you responsible to pay the tax – but if you BOTH don’t pay the tax debt – then the IRS will come after EACH of you INDIVIDUALLY for the WHOLE tax debt. It doesn’t matter whether you are now divorced and it doesn’t matter whether in the context of a divorce proceeding or in some other way, a state court says you are not responsible for the tax debt. The IRS is federal jurisdiction and ignores state proceedings when assessing or collecting federal income tax. If your spouse did something improper with the tax filing that led to the tax debt the IRS is now trying to collect from you, what you need specifically is IRS Innocent Spouse Relief.
The professionals at Tax Defense Partners are expert in interpreting your facts and circumstances to see if you have a shot at Innocent Spouse Relief. If you do, they know how to frame the facts and evidence into a compelling case to present on your behalf to the IRS. You just talk to Tax Defense Partners; Tax Defense Partners talks to the IRS so you don’t have to.
