“Innocent Spouse” IRS Relief
You Are NOT Responsible for the Misdeeds of Your Spouse… If You Know What Steps to Take.
You’re in luck! The IRS has provisions for an “Innocent Spouse”.
“Innocent Spouse Relief provides you relief from additional tax you owe if your spouse or former spouse failed to report income, reported income improperly or claimed improper deductions or credits.” – IRS Topic 205
Under certain circumstances, you may be resolved of any misdeeds of a spouse or former spouse involving income tax fraud.
Most married couples file their tax returns jointly. There are certainly benefits to this, but if there were certain “errors” or “mistakes” on your joint return and it was your (present or former) spouse’s fault, you could be in luck. There are provisions in the Tax code that will let you out of a tax burden that was not your fault. But, it will need to be proven. We can help.
To ensure yourself the best possible outcome, it is best to take action as soon as you realize there is a problem.
We can review your situation and help you determine your options and file for Innocent Spouse Relief when necessary.

What our Clients are saying
A relative referred me to Cochran Tax Service so I decided to give them a try. Needless to say, the results were much, much better than in any of my previous years. Linda asked pertinent questions and gave me information about deductions that I was unaware about pertaining to my business. I was very excited to get the results for 2009, any even more so with the results from the amended returns for the last 3 years (refunds from overpaid taxes because of an error she discovered on those returns). It goes without saying, that from now on the Cochran firm will be getting my business. Thanks for all the excellent help.Earl Sparks
