Though marriage is usually thought to be a partnership of equals, influence within a marital relationship is often far from equal. One spouse may have full control of all finances and make all financial decisions and may take financial risks that the other spouse doesn't know about or isn't comfortable with. When financial problems lead to a divorce, an IRS tax dispute or potential charges of tax fraud, a spouse can be unfairly dragged into a legal battle or even criminal charges.
The IRS is aware that an "innocent spouse" may be helplessly embroiled in his or her spouse's tax issues. The Massachusetts tax law firm of Levins Tax Law, LLC, can provide effective legal help if your spouse or ex-spouse has tax issues with the IRS.

How Innocent Spouse Claims Work
When you claim to be an innocent spouse, the IRS will suspend its file against you until your claim is resolved.
We can prepare your request for relief and document all relevant information. Is there a history of abuse? Did you know or should you have known of your spouse's financial activity? Would contributing to the repayment of a tax liability result in a tax hardship for you? Are you divorced or separated?
Though you may be legally liable for marital debts within a marriage, the IRS is open to negotiate. We have negotiated and resolved numerous innocent spouse cases. For more information and to schedule a no-obligation, confidential consultation, please contact our firm.
