“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
I own a small business in the Manchester, ct area; we have performed contractor services for 30 years. After many years of going back and forth with accounting companies I wasn’t overjoyed with I was introduced to Deb prior and her team about 10 years ago. Since that time, I have received exceptional accounting services as well as savvy business assistance. Response to phone calls and questions is always prompt even off hours during the busy tax season. I also want to do business with people I trust and enjoy; Deb and Gene are fantastic. I would highly recommend CPA consulting services to anyone be it an individual or business like myself; in fact, Deb now does all my families taxes too!! Great company, great people, professional, reliable, prompt- highly recommend
Gene and Deb,
This is the third year that I have utilized the services of Prior Tax services, and I will continue to use their services for as long as I can.
I was actually lucky to have been referred to Prior by another accountant who couldn’t take any new clients…and I’m so glad she couldn’t because Prior Tax has been fantastic every year. Not only have I gotten GREAT returns every year, but the service is outstanding. Deb is so professional but also friendly. She is quick at getting the tax application done, but she goes over it carefully to ensure accuracy and the best possible return.
I told Deb that if she moves away, she’ll have to take me with her because I don’t want to deal with anyone else!
