Innocent Spouse Relief
Tax Accountants, Advisors, & Business Consultants in Hesperia, California
It is possible to be absolved of an IRS debt if the reason for the additional debt is the fault of your spouse and you had nothing to do with the misdeed. There is a thing called "Equitable Relief" which means that it just would not be fair to make you pay for your spouse's debt. If you are approved as an innocent spouse, you will not have your portion of any tax refund confiscated but every year thereafter you have to file the innocent spouse form so that your portion of the total refund is not confiscated.
