Taxpayer Success Story-Resolved Tax Issues #7615

July 6, 2015

KD-This Taxpayer came to our Firm as a Referral for owing the IRS $138,426.86 for tax years 2000-2009. She was very upset that her ex-husband, a professional film maker in CA, and self-employed did not pay in his taxes to the Federal Government during the time they were married. He claimed that he was paying his self-employment taxes in estimated tax payments, while his wife, KD was a W-2 Wage Earner having Federal Taxes withheld on her paycheck. It wasn’t until years later, that she had her taxes prepared and came to our Firm, at which time the IRS had issued Wage Garnishments on her paycheck, that she learned her ex did not pay his share of taxes. When the Wage Garnishment hit, she was divorced, a single wage earner with two young minor children living at home. There was no child support coming in from her ex-husband to help her support her minor children and there was not enough money left over at the end of the money to pay the IRS. She was barely getting by. Our Firm, Redd & Greaves, P.C., analyzed her monthly financial situation and it was determined that KD qualified as Status 53 or “Currently not Collectible”. After carefully reviewing the facts of her case, our Firm advised KD that she qualified for Innocent Spouse Treatment. She provided a history time line and facts that supported us filing a Form 8867, Request for Innocent Souse Relief, for the TP. The Firm just received a letter last week that her Innocent Spouse Relief has just been granted by the IRS for all tax periods. The TP is relieved that now she can finish raising her children without fear of the IRS taking any money she needs to put food on the table for her kids or keep a roof over their heads.
