Innocent Spouse Relief

A large number of married couples choose to file a joint tax return. Married taxpayers exercise this option as there are a number of benefits associated with this filing status. In such cases both taxpayers are individually, as well as, jointly responsible for the payment or non-payment of the tax. Even if the partners later divorce they will jointly be subjected to any interest or penalty as a result of taxes.

Even if one spouse has not earned any income and the other spouse has, he/she are still responsible for all the tax on the income. This is where innocent spouse relief comes in.
