You may be entitled to Innocent Spouse Relief. Call (818) 704-1443 to find out today.

In addition to needing to meet the requirements classified under “traditional relief”, an injured spouse may request relief via allocation of liability or request innocent spouse relief under the equitable relief rules. Another significant change that benefits the seeker involves the streamlined determination process.

Under the new rules, the IRS is now able to weigh new factors including marital status, hardship status and knowledge associated with the return/s in question in making their determination. Prior to the change, a request may have been denied if the requesting spouse did not meet all of the conditions listed above.

Although the rules to request relief have been relaxed, to achieve success, the process to have a request granted must be managed by professionals with (1) a history of practicing in this area and (2) a clear understanding of the new Revenue Procedures that apply to this area.
