It is not unusual for to have divorced clients seeking assistance with a former spouse’s tax issues. Be prepared to help an injured or innocent spouse and expand your practice.

2 CPE for EA, CPA, CRTP

$52 for Members and $64 for Nonmembers

Includes webinar recording and PowerPoint presentation. CPE is issued after exam is successfully completed.

With nearly 50% of marriages ending in divorce, and nearly 11.5 million taxpayer accounts in the IRS Collection Division inventory, it is becoming ever-more frequent for practitioners to have divorced clients seeking assistance with a former spouse’s tax issues.  In addition, clients are often seeking help when they marry someone who has a prior tax issue and lose a refund to pay the new spouse’s back taxes.  This webinar will review issues with joint liability, the rules for taxpayers seeking innocent spouse treatment, what elements will be critical to building their case, and the process for appealing any initial decision by the IRS Centralized Innocent Spouse group.  This webinar will also review issues to consider when clients are getting divorced and what practitioners should consider when preparing returns for filing.  Finally, we’ll discuss helping clients obtain "injured spouse" treatment and get back the refunds the IRS appropriated to pay a former spouse’s old tax debt.​

Upon completion of this on-demand webinar, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate between an innocent spouse and injured spouse.
  • Compare the three types of innocent spouse treatment that exist.
  • Explain the rules for seeking innocent spouse treatment.
  • Identify what an "injured spouse” is and how to seek relief.
