When your spouse or former spouse causes a tax liability due to the IRS, which you know nothing about, then an innocent spouse claim for relief could be a tax resolution strategy available to you. If you qualify, this will absolve you from your shared liability on any tax debt owed to the IRS due to a joint tax return. In most cases, spouses were unaware of the tax matters or tax crimes that had taken place and are often blindsided to receive a notice from the IRS alerting them to a problem.
Tax crimes can be devastating to families; financially and emotionally. Discovering that a loved one, or past loved one, has failed to report income or improperly reported income to the IRS can have a devastating impact. This is most common amongst divorced couples. It is not typically discovered until a year or two after a divorce has finalized that an innocent spouse is hit with a reminder of their past relationship.
