Innocent Spouse

Did you know that you could get out of the tax debt due to the misdeeds or fraud committed by your spouse? Innocent Spouse Relief exists to alleviate unjust situations where one spouse is clearly not responsible for the tax liability created by their spouse or former spouse.

This tax problem solution is based on a two-part set of rules encompassing Innocent Spouse, Separation of Liability, and Equitable Relief. The appropriate portion of the solution depends on each taxpayer’s situation. Considerations include whether the spouses are still together, whether there is understatement or underpayment on the joint tax returns filed, and other factors that can effect mitigation.

These special rules exist to protect an innocent spouse from exposure to IRS collection actions related to a spouse’s tax liability. If the IRS is trying to collect taxes related to the income of a (current or former) spouse that you believe you should not be forced to pay, call us at (716) 631-5111 for a free consultation. If their actions seem unfair, this program may be exactly what you need.

Once you become our client you won’t have to speak to the IRS anymore.

If they want information or to talk to you they will have to go through us. The first step to getting tax problem help is calling us at (716) 631-5111 and scheduling a one hour no obligation case evaluation with one of our Certified Tax Resolution Specialists. During this meeting we will discuss the details of the case and make plans to start the investigation. During the investigation phase of your case we will be gathering information, pulling transcripts, and finding out what the IRS knows about you. Once all the details are in place we will set up another meeting to go over your resolution options.

Trying to figure out how to end a tax problem on your own probably feels overwhelming, and that’s why you’re entitled to representation. Take advantage of it! Believe it or not an experienced taxpayer representative often knows more about the IRS programs and rules than a lot of IRS agents!

Let us help you get back on track with the IRS or State. Call (716) 631-5111 today.

Dear Larry Lawler, My wife and I would like to thank you for being instrumental in negotiating our offer-in-compromise with the IRS. What seemed like insurmountable odds going into this process turned out to be a great victory for us. With your help, we were able to reduce a liability debt load of over $495,000.00 and negotiate a settlement for $500.00. You were able to overcome a disinterested party in the IRS who were not even interested in negotiating any settlement with us. Through your tact and technique, the IRS eventually settled upon our offer. I whole-heartedly recommend Lawler & Witkowski to anyone who has any IRS issues or problems. Hopefully, they may experience the same positive results as we got. Thanks again.
