Who Qualifies for Innocent Spouse Relief?
Innocent spouse relief is a tax status that individuals who meet specific criteria can apply for. It is unique in that it is one of the few ways that an individual can qualify for full tax forgiveness. Those who are granted innocent spouse relief status are not responsible for back taxes owed on joint filings.
The primary thing that an applicant must prove to the IRS is that their spouse acted without their knowledge or consent.
Specifically, the petitioner must demonstrate that their spouse took one of three actions without their consent, including:
- He or she failed to report income.
- He or she underreported income.
- He or she fraudulently claimed credits or deductions.
This can be a challenging task, especially when your signature is on the return. In order for you to receive the status, the IRS must determine that there is zero evidence that shows that you knew about the filing problems when you signed.
