innocent spouse rule

The Innocent Spouse Rule:

I am divorced, but the IRS keeps trying to collect taxes that my EX should be paying. Can this rule help protect me?

The Innocent Spouse provisions of the Internal Revenue Code have been in force for years, but only in the past few years have they been liberalized. In fact, the Internal Revenue Service has recently been inundated with such Innocent Spouse claims.

The Innocent Spouse rule is technical, and the time period for such claims and appeals is very lengthy. If it involves a good deal of money or you are sure the taxes are a result of the dealings of your former spouse, please contact Mr. Cohen to assess whether or not your Innocent Spouse claim has a chance of succeeding.
