What is innocent spouse relief?
Innocent spouse relief is a type of tax status that you can apply for if you meet certain criteria. Innocent spouse relief is one of the few options that can result in full tax forgiveness. Individuals who qualify and are granted innocent spouse relief status don’t have to pay for back taxes owed on joint filings.
Applicants must prove that their spouse acted without their knowledge or consent by demonstrating their spouse took one of the following three actions without their consent:
- Failed to report income
- Underreported income
- Fraudulently claimed credits or deductions
Proving these actions can be a major obstacle to overcome, especially when your signature is on the return. Before you can obtain innocent spouse relief status, the IRS must first determine there is no evidence that suggests you were aware of the filing issues when you signed the document.
