“Innocent Spouse” IRS Relief

You Are NOT Responsible for the Misdeeds of Your Spouse… If You Know What Steps to Take.

You’re in luck! The IRS has provisions for an “Innocent Spouse”.

“Innocent Spouse Relief provides you relief from additional tax you owe if your spouse or former spouse failed to report income, reported income improperly or claimed improper deductions or credits.” – IRS Topic 205

Under certain circumstances, you may be resolved of any misdeeds of a spouse or former spouse involving income tax fraud.

Most married couples file their tax returns jointly. There are certainly benefits to this, but if there were certain “errors” or “mistakes” on your joint return and it was your (present or former) spouse’s fault, you could be in luck. There are provisions in the Tax code that will let you out of a tax burden that was not your fault. But, it will need to be proven. We can help.

To ensure yourself the best possible outcome, it is best to take action as soon as you realize there is a problem.

We can review your situation and help you determine your options and file for Innocent Spouse Relief when necessary.

What our Clients are saying

We were so lucky to have been referred to the team at Burkart & Stevens. My husband and I were on a tight deadline in order to file taxes before purchasing a home and Cole didn’t hesitate to jump right in. He went above and beyond to work with us, answering every question we had along the way. A year later, we are starting a new year free of anxiety and the lingering uncertainty that usually surrounds our tax filing. In a way, Cole and his team have become an integral part of our family and we couldn’t be more grateful for them!
