How Innocent Spouse Relief Really Works - Pitfalls and Opportunities**
When congress created joint filing for taxpayers it also created joint liability for those same tax liabilities. Later, Congress created relief from joint liability for innocent spouses. So what does a taxpayer need to do to prove they are an innocent spouse, and what are the differences between the three forms of innocent spouse relief? This program will explain the various forms of innocent spouse relief available under IRC § 6015 and what taxpayers need to do to document their case. Finally, Attorney Green will explain the difference between innocent spouse relief and injured spouse relief, and when each form of relief is appropriate.
