How a Tax Professional Can Help with Innocent Spouse Relief

A tax professional improves the chances that your request for relief will be accepted and whether you qualify (so you don't waste money or time). Consequently, if your request is rejected, requesting relief for the same year(s) will be difficult. That’s why it’s important to file correctly the first time.

Here are some advantages to using a tax professional for innocent spouse relief help:

  • The IRS and many states actually prefer working with a tax professional. As a result, tax professionals make the jobs of IRS/State employees easier.
  • A tax professional can stop collection activities such as wage garnishment or asset seizure. Realize, that as soon as the professional puts in your application for relief, all collection activity stops.
  • A tax professional can help you decide if your request for relief is likely to get approved and can help you with the process.
  • Tax professionals understand all the rules and requirements. You don’t have to worry about reading confusing instructions and filling out long forms.

How Innocent Spouse Relief Service Usually Works

Many tax professionals will give you a free no-obligation consultation to determine if you are a great candidate for Innocent Spouse Relief, Equitable Relief, or Separation of Liability Relief. The consultation generally carries no obligation. Many professionals start off with an investigation, which will confirm what you owe, penalties and interest assessed, as well as any required tax return filings. Finally, a tax professional will provide guidance on tax programs you may want to pursue.

Second, you will obtain a cost estimate for the tax services needed to get into compliance and into a resolution with the IRS and/or State. This estimate will break down the services required to get you into compliance and into a resolution with the IRS and/or State.

Third, if you decide you want the tax services, a tax professional official can represent you with a completed power of attorney submitted to the IRS or the state taxation authorities. Consequently, this process stops the IRS (and/or State if you submit a State POA) from contacting you and routes all communication through your hired tax team.

Fourth, your licensed tax team will file all required forms and documentation. You may need to retrieve certain documents required for your tax resolution or tax filing.
