New York City Innocent Spouse Tax Lawyer
Sometimes one spouse knows nothing about another spouse’s illicit affairs. When these affairs lead to a tax matter, an innocent person might be caught up in a dispute with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In these situations, it is wise to retain an experienced innocent spouse tax attorney in Manhattan, Staten Island and other communities throughout New York City.
The staff at Gabor & Marotta LLC understand that it is unfair to charge the unknowing party in these situations. We have defended innocent spouses caught in a wide range of circumstances. If a spouse can demonstrate that he or she was unaware of the tax understatement or the fraudulent filing or was not responsible for the filing at all, it would be unfair for the IRS to hold him or her accountable for these taxes. In many cases, the IRS will relieve our client of all or a part of his or her tax debt.
Experienced New York tax attorneys can use three basic methods to protect innocent spouses from tax matters:
- Basic innocent spouse relief
- Separation of liability relief
- Equitable relief
These three types of relief are available for help in certain specific situations, and an experienced attorney can help an individual determine the tax liability associated with each situation.
Most often, we find that these types of tax disputes arise following a divorce. A divorced spouse has a stronger argument in regard to his or her innocence, but a skilled attorney will help no matter the situation.
