Innocent Spouse Relief Assistance in Port St. Lucie

Innocent Spouse Relief is one of the three types of Relief from Joint Tax Liability (Equitable Spouse Relief or Separation of Liability Relief) where the joint return has understated tax liability due to either improperly reported or omitted items attributable to a taxpayer’s spouse or former spouse in which the taxpayer did not know or have reason to know of it. You can be relieved of responsibility for paying tax, interest, and penalties resulting from this by requesting innocent spouse relief. If successful, generally, the tax, interest, and penalties that qualify for relief can only be collected from your spouse (or former spouse). However, you are jointly and individually responsible for any tax, interest, and penalties that do not qualify for relief. The IRS can collect these amounts from either you or your spouse (or former spouse).

As you can see, several factors need proper attending to achieve the best outcome. Success is contingent upon providing a delineated set of evidence and adhering to correct IRS procedural protocols. Often this requires a multifaceted approach by professionals who have a wide array of capabilities to ensure that your situation is appropriately addressed.


To obtain the best results, in this case, it is crucial to employ a professional who is capable of adequately analyzing your situation from all angles and then advocating for you accordingly. Hiring a seasoned professional having the advocation skillsets of an attorney, the business/financial acumen, and audit capabilities of a CPA, coupled with the taxation knowledge and understanding of an Enrolled Agent, would ensure one is afforded optimal and complete representation. At Harmon Tax Resolution, LLC, you will receive just that; the benefits of counsel from a seasoned multi-licensed Attorney-Certified Public Accountant-Enrolled Agent while not having to pay more! Please see below for contact information.


You must meet all of the following conditions to qualify for innocent spouse relief.

  1. You filed a joint return.
  2. There is an understated tax on the return due to incorrect items of your spouse (or former spouse).
  3. You can show that when you signed the joint return, you did not know and had no reason to know that the understated tax existed (or the extent to which the understated tax existed).
  4. Considering all the facts and circumstances, it would be unfair to hold you liable for the understated tax. See Indications of Unfairness for Innocent Spouse Relief, later. The IRS would not grant Innocent spouse relief if you and your spouse (or former spouse) transferred the property to another as part of a fraudulent scheme. A fraudulent system includes a scheme to defraud the IRS or another third party, such as a creditor, former spouse, or business partner.

The taxpayer must request relief within two years after the date on which the IRS begins collection activity. In most cases, innocent spouse relief is limited to taxpayers who are no longer married, including when one spouse is deceased.


Therefore, it is crucial for those with underlying circumstances to properly document and present the events to convey their position adequately. To ensure that nothing is overlooked or improperly portrayed, employing a multi-licensed Attorney-CPA-Enrolled Agent can provide such vital assistance to help establish the facts of the matter and use correct IRS procedures to obtain resolution.
