Us government form 1040x If you are requesting relief for more than three tax years, you must file an additional Form 8857. Us government form 1040x The IRS will review your Form 8857 and let you know if you qualify. Us government form 1040x A completed Form 8857 is shown later. Us government form 1040x When to file Form 8857. Us government form 1040x   You should file Form 8857 as soon as you become aware of a tax liability for which you believe only your spouse or former spouse should be held responsible. Us government form 1040x The following are some of the ways you may become aware of such a liability. Us government form 1040x The IRS is examining your tax return and proposing to increase your tax liability. Us government form 1040x The IRS sends you a notice. Us government form 1040x   You must file Form 8857 no later than two years after the date on which the IRS first attempted to collect the tax from you that occurs after July 22, 1998. Us government form 1040x (But see the exceptions below for different filing deadlines that apply. Us government form 1040x ) For this reason, do not delay filing because you do not have all the documentation. Us government form 1040x   Collection activities that may start the 2-year period are: The IRS offset your income tax refund against an amount you owed on a joint return for another year and the IRS informed you about your right to file Form 8857. Us government form 1040x The filing of a claim by the IRS in a court proceeding in which you were a party or the filing of a claim in a proceeding that involves your property. Us government form 1040x This includes the filing of a proof of claim in a bankruptcy proceeding. Us government form 1040x The filing of a suit by the United States against you to collect the joint liability. Us government form 1040x The issuance of a section 6330 notice, which notifies you of the IRS' intent to levy and your right to a collection due process (CDP) hearing. Us government form 1040x The collection-related notices include, but are not limited to, Letter 11 and Letter 1058. Us government form 1040x Exception for equitable relief. Us government form 1040x   On July 25, 2011, the IRS issued Notice 2011-70 (available at www. Us government form 1040x irs. Us government form 1040x gov/irb/2011-32_IRB/ar11. Us government form 1040x html) expanding the amount of time to request equitable relief. Us government form 1040x The amount of time to request equitable relief depends on whether you are seeking relief from a balance due, seeking a credit or refund, or both: Balance Due – Generally, you must file your request within the time period the IRS has to collect the tax. Us government form 1040x Generally, the IRS has 10 years from the date the tax liability was assessed to collect the tax. Us government form 1040x In certain cases, the 10-year period is suspended. Us government form 1040x The amount of time the suspension is in effect will extend the time the IRS has to collect the tax. Us government form 1040x See Pub. Us government form 1040x 594, The IRS Collection Process, for details. Us government form 1040x Credit or Refund – Generally, you must file your request within 3 years after the date the original return was filed or within 2 years after the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. Us government form 1040x But you may have more time to file if you live in a federally declared disaster area or you are physically or mentally unable to manage your financial affairs. Us government form 1040x See Pub. Us government form 1040x 556, Examination of Returns, Appeal Rights, and Claims for Refund, for details. Us government form 1040x Both a Balance Due and a Credit or Refund – If you are seeking a refund of amounts you paid and relief from a balance due over and above what you have paid, the time period for credit or refund will apply to any payments you have made, and the time period for collection of a balance due amount will apply to any unpaid liability. Us government form 1040x Exception for relief based on community property laws. Us government form 1040x   If you are requesting relief based on community property laws, a different filing deadline applies. Us government form 1040x See Relief from liability arising from community property law discussed later under Community Property Laws . Us government form 1040x Form 8857 filed by or on behalf of a decedent. Us government form 1040x   An executor (including any other duly appointed representative) may pursue a Form 8857 filed during the decedent's lifetime. Us government form 1040x An executor (including any other duly appointed representative) may also file Form 8857 as long as the decedent satisfied the eligibility requirements while alive. Us government form 1040x For purposes of separation of liability relief (discussed later), the decedent's marital status is determined on the earlier of the date relief was requested or the date of death. Us government form 1040x Situations in which you are not entitled to relief. Us government form 1040x   You are not entitled to innocent spouse relief for any tax year to which the following situations apply. Us government form 1040x In a final decision dated after July 22, 1998, a court considered whether to grant you relief from joint liability and decided not to do so. Us government form 1040x In a final decision dated after July 22, 1998, a court did not consider whether to grant you relief from joint liability, but you meaningfully participated in the proceeding and could have asked for relief. Us government form 1040x You entered into an offer in compromise with the IRS. Us government form 1040x You entered into a closing agreement with the IRS that disposed of the same liability for which you want to seek relief. Us government form 1040x Exception for agreements relating to TEFRA partnership proceedings. Us government form 1040x   You may be entitled to relief, discussed in (4) earlier, if you entered into a closing agreement for both partnership items and nonpartnership items, while you were a party to a pending TEFRA partnership proceeding. Us government form 1040x (TEFRA is an acronym that refers to the “Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982” that prescribed the tax treatment of partnership items. Us government form 1040x ) You are not entitled to relief for the nonpartnership items, but you will be entitled to relief for the partnership items (if you otherwise qualify). Us government form 1040x Transferee liability not affected by innocent spouse relief provisions. Us government form 1040x   The innocent spouse relief provisions do not affect tax liabilities that arise under federal or state transferee liability or property laws. Us government form 1040x Therefore, even if you are relieved of the tax liability under the innocent spouse relief provisions, you may remain liable for the unpaid tax, interest, and penalties to the extent provided by these laws. Us government form 1040x Example. Us government form 1040x Herb and Wanda timely filed their 2008 joint income tax return on April 15, 2009. Us government form 1040x Herb died in March 2010, and the executor of Herb's will transferred all of the estate's assets to Wanda. Us government form 1040x In August 2010, the IRS assessed a deficiency for the 2008 return. Us government form 1040x The items causing the deficiency belong to Herb. Us government form 1040x Wanda is relieved of the deficiency under the innocent spouse relief provisions, and Herb's estate remains solely liable for it. Us government form 1040x However, the IRS may collect the deficiency from Wanda to the extent permitted under federal or state transferee liability or property laws. Us government form 1040x The IRS Must Contact Your Spouse or Former Spouse By law, the IRS must contact your spouse or former spouse. Us government form 1040x There are no exceptions, even for victims of spousal abuse or domestic violence. Us government form 1040x We will inform your spouse or former spouse that you filed Form 8857 and will allow him or her to participate in the process. Us government form 1040x If you are requesting relief from joint and several liability on a joint return, the IRS must also inform him or her of its preliminary and final determinations regarding your request for relief. Us government form 1040x However, to protect your privacy, the IRS will not disclose your personal information (for example, your current name, address, phone number(s), information about your employer, your income or assets) or any other information that does not relate to making a determination about your request for relief from liability. Us government form 1040x If you petition the Tax Court (explained below), your spouse or former spouse may see your personal information. Us government form 1040x Tax Court Review of Request After you file Form 8857, you may be able to petition (ask) the United States Tax Court to review your request for relief in the following two situations. Us government form 1040x The IRS sends you a final determination letter regarding your request for relief. Us government form 1040x You do not receive a final determination letter from the IRS within six months from the date you filed Form 8857. Us government form 1040x If you seek equitable relief for an underpaid tax, you will be able to get a Tax Court review of your request only if the tax arose or remained unpaid on or after December 20, 2006. Us government form 1040x The United States Tax Court is an independent judicial body and is not part of the IRS. Us government form 1040x You must file a petition with the United States Tax Court in order for it to review your request for relief. Us government form 1040x You must file the petition no later than the 90th day after the date the IRS mails its final determination notice to you. Us government form 1040x If you do not file a petition, or you file it late, the Tax Court cannot review your request for relief. Us government form 1040x You can get a copy of the rules for filing a petition by writing to the Tax Court at the following address:    United States Tax Court 400 Second Street, NW Washington, DC 20217 Or you can visit the Tax Court's website at www. Us government form 1040x ustaxcourt. Us government form 1040x gov Community Property Laws You must generally follow community property laws when filing a tax return if you are married and live in a community property state. Us government form 1040x Community property states are Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. Us government form 1040x Generally, community property laws require you to allocate community income and expenses equally between both spouses. Us government form 1040x However, community property laws are not taken into account in determining whether an item belongs to you or to your spouse (or former spouse) for purposes of requesting any relief from liability. Us government form 1040x Relief for Married Persons Who Did Not File Joint Returns Married persons who live in community property states, but who did not file joint returns, have two ways to get relief. Us government form 1040x Relief From Liability Arising From Community Property Law You are not responsible for the tax relating to an item of community income if all the following conditions exist. Us government form 1040x You did not file a joint return for the tax year. Us government form 1040x You did not include the item of community income in gross income. Us government form 1040x The item of community income you did not include is one of the following: Wages, salaries, and other compensation your spouse (or former spouse) received for services he or she performed as an employee. Us government form 1040x Income your spouse (or former spouse) derived from a trade or business he or she operated as a sole proprietor. Us government form 1040x Your spouse's (or former spouse's) distributive share of partnership income. Us government form 1040x Income from your spouse's (or former spouse's) separate property (other than income described in (a), (b), or (c)). Us government form 1040x Use the appropriate community property law to determine what is separate property. Us government form 1040x Any other income that belongs to your spouse (or former spouse) under community property law. Us government form 1040x You establish that you did not know of, and had no reason to know of, that community income. Us government form 1040x See  Actual Knowledge or Reason To Know , below. Us government form 1040x Under all facts and circumstances, it would not be fair to include the item of community income in your gross income. Us government form 1040x See Indications of unfairness for liability arising from community property law, later. Us government form 1040x Actual knowledge or reason to know. Us government form 1040x   You knew or had reason to know of an item of community income if: You actually knew of the item of community income, or A reasonable person in similar circumstances would have known of the item of community income. Us government form 1040x Amount of community income unknown. Us government form 1040x   If you are aware of the source of the item of community income or the income-producing activity, but are unaware of the specific amount, you are considered to know or have reason to know of the item of community income. Us government form 1040x Not knowing the specific amount is not a basis for relief. Us government form 1040x Reason to know. Us government form 1040x   The IRS will consider all facts and circumstances in determining whether you had reason to know of an item of community income. Us government form 1040x The facts and circumstances include: The nature of the item of community income and the amount of the item relative to other income items. Us government form 1040x The financial situation of you and your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x Your educational background and business experience. Us government form 1040x Whether the item of community income represented a departure from a recurring pattern reflected in prior years' returns (for example, omitted income from an investment regularly reported on prior years' returns). Us government form 1040x Indications of unfairness for liability arising from community property law. Us government form 1040x   The IRS will consider all of the facts and circumstances of the case in order to determine whether it is unfair to hold you responsible for the understated tax due to the item of community income. Us government form 1040x   The following are examples of factors the IRS will consider. Us government form 1040x Whether you received a benefit, either directly or indirectly, from the omitted item of community income (defined below). Us government form 1040x Whether your spouse (or former spouse) deserted you. Us government form 1040x Whether you and your spouse have been divorced or separated. Us government form 1040x  For other factors see Factors for Determining Whether To Grant Equitable Relief later. Us government form 1040x Benefit from omitted item of community income. Us government form 1040x   A benefit includes normal support, but does not include de minimis (small) amounts. Us government form 1040x Evidence of a direct or indirect benefit may consist of transfers of property or rights to property, including transfers received several years after the filing of the return. Us government form 1040x   For example, if you receive property, including life insurance proceeds, from your spouse (or former spouse) and the property is traceable to omitted items of community income attributable to your spouse (or former spouse), you are considered to have benefitted from those omitted items of community income. Us government form 1040x Equitable Relief If you do not qualify for the relief described above and are now liable for an underpaid or understated tax you believe should be paid only by your spouse (or former spouse), you may request equitable relief (discussed later). Us government form 1040x How and When To Request Relief You request relief by filing Form 8857, as discussed earlier. Us government form 1040x Fill in Form 8857 according to the instructions. Us government form 1040x For relief from liability arising from community property law, you must file Form 8857 no later than 6 months before the expiration of the period of limitations on assessment (including extensions) against your spouse for the tax year for which you are requesting relief. Us government form 1040x However, if the IRS begins an examination of your return during that 6-month period, the latest time for requesting relief is 30 days after the date the IRS' initial contact letter to you. Us government form 1040x The period of limitation on assessment is the amount of time, generally three years, that the IRS has from the date you filed the return to assess taxes that you owe. Us government form 1040x Innocent Spouse Relief By requesting innocent spouse relief, you can be relieved of responsibility for paying tax, interest, and penalties if your spouse (or former spouse) improperly reported items or omitted items on your tax return. Us government form 1040x Generally, the tax, interest, and penalties that qualify for relief can only be collected from your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x However, you are jointly and individually responsible for any tax, interest, and penalties that do not qualify for relief. Us government form 1040x The IRS can collect these amounts from either you or your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x You must meet all of the following conditions to qualify for innocent spouse relief. Us government form 1040x You filed a joint return. Us government form 1040x There is an understated tax on the return that is due to erroneous items (defined later) of your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x You can show that when you signed the joint return you did not know, and had no reason to know, that the understated tax existed (or the extent to which the understated tax existed). Us government form 1040x See Actual Knowledge or Reason To Know, later. Us government form 1040x Taking into account all the facts and circumstances, it would be unfair to hold you liable for the understated tax. Us government form 1040x See Indications of Unfairness for Innocent Spouse Relief , later. Us government form 1040x Innocent spouse relief will not be granted if the IRS proves that you and your spouse (or former spouse) transferred property to one another as part of a fraudulent scheme. Us government form 1040x A fraudulent scheme includes a scheme to defraud the IRS or another third party, such as a creditor, former spouse, or business partner. Us government form 1040x Understated Tax You have an understated tax if the IRS determined that your total tax should be more than the amount that was actually shown on your return. Us government form 1040x Erroneous Items Erroneous items are either of the following. Us government form 1040x Unreported income. Us government form 1040x This is any gross income item received by your spouse (or former spouse) that is not reported. Us government form 1040x Incorrect deduction, credit, or basis. Us government form 1040x This is any improper deduction, credit, or property basis claimed by your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x The following are examples of erroneous items. Us government form 1040x The expense for which the deduction is taken was never paid or incurred. Us government form 1040x For example, your spouse, a cash-basis taxpayer, deducted $10,000 of advertising expenses on Schedule C of your joint Form 1040, but never paid for any advertising. Us government form 1040x The expense does not qualify as a deductible expense. Us government form 1040x For example, your spouse claimed a business fee deduction of $10,000 that was for the payment of state fines. Us government form 1040x Fines are not deductible. Us government form 1040x No factual argument can be made to support the deductibility of the expense. Us government form 1040x For example, your spouse claimed $4,000 for security costs related to a home office, which were actually veterinary and food costs for your family's two dogs. Us government form 1040x Actual Knowledge or Reason To Know You knew or had reason to know of an understated tax if: You actually knew of the understated tax, or A reasonable person in similar circumstances would have known of the understated tax. Us government form 1040x Actual knowledge. Us government form 1040x   If you actually knew about an erroneous item that belongs to your spouse (or former spouse), the relief discussed here does not apply to any part of the understated tax due to that item. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse (or former spouse) remain jointly liable for that part of the understated tax. Us government form 1040x For information about the criteria for determining whether you actually knew about an erroneous item, see Actual Knowledge later under Separation of Liability Relief. Us government form 1040x Reason to know. Us government form 1040x   If you had reason to know about an erroneous item that belongs to your spouse (or former spouse), the relief discussed here does not apply to any part of the understated tax due to that item. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse (or former spouse) remain jointly liable for that part of the understated tax. Us government form 1040x   The IRS will consider all facts and circumstances in determining whether you had reason to know of an understated tax due to an erroneous item. Us government form 1040x The facts and circumstances include: The nature of the erroneous item and the amount of the erroneous item relative to other items. Us government form 1040x The financial situation of you and your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x Your educational background and business experience. Us government form 1040x The extent of your participation in the activity that resulted in the erroneous item. Us government form 1040x Whether you failed to ask, at or before the time the return was signed, about items on the return or omitted from the return that a reasonable person would question. Us government form 1040x Whether the erroneous item represented a departure from a recurring pattern reflected in prior years' returns (for example, omitted income from an investment regularly reported on prior years' returns). Us government form 1040x Partial relief when a portion of erroneous item is unknown. Us government form 1040x   You may qualify for partial relief if, at the time you filed your return, you had no knowledge or reason to know of only a portion of an erroneous item. Us government form 1040x You will be relieved of the understated tax due to that portion of the item if all other requirements are met for that portion. Us government form 1040x Example. Us government form 1040x At the time you signed your joint return, you knew that your spouse did not report $5,000 of gambling winnings. Us government form 1040x The IRS examined your tax return several months after you filed it and determined that your spouse's unreported gambling winnings were actually $25,000. Us government form 1040x You established that you did not know about, and had no reason to know about, the additional $20,000 because of the way your spouse handled gambling winnings. Us government form 1040x The understated tax due to the $20,000 will qualify for innocent spouse relief if you meet the other requirements. Us government form 1040x The understated tax due to the $5,000 of gambling winnings you knew about will not qualify for relief. Us government form 1040x Indications of Unfairness for Innocent Spouse Relief The IRS will consider all of the facts and circumstances of the case in order to determine whether it is unfair to hold you responsible for the understated tax. Us government form 1040x The following are examples of factors the IRS will consider. Us government form 1040x Whether you received a significant benefit (defined below), either directly or indirectly, from the understated tax. Us government form 1040x Whether your spouse (or former spouse) deserted you. Us government form 1040x Whether you and your spouse have been divorced or separated. Us government form 1040x Whether you received a benefit on the return from the understated tax. Us government form 1040x For other factors, see Factors for Determining Whether To Grant Equitable Relief later under Equitable Relief. Us government form 1040x Significant benefit. Us government form 1040x   A significant benefit is any benefit in excess of normal support. Us government form 1040x Normal support depends on your particular circumstances. Us government form 1040x Evidence of a direct or indirect benefit may consist of transfers of property or rights to property, including transfers that may be received several years after the year of the understated tax. Us government form 1040x Example. Us government form 1040x You receive money from your spouse that is beyond normal support. Us government form 1040x The money can be traced to your spouse's lottery winnings that were not reported on your joint return. Us government form 1040x You will be considered to have received a significant benefit from that income. Us government form 1040x This is true even if your spouse gives you the money several years after he or she received it. Us government form 1040x Separation of Liability Relief Under this type of relief, the understated tax (plus interest and penalties) on your joint return is allocated between you and your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x The understated tax allocated to you is generally the amount you are responsible for. Us government form 1040x This type of relief is available only for unpaid liabilities resulting from the understated tax. Us government form 1040x Refunds are not allowed. Us government form 1040x To request separation of liability relief, you must have filed a joint return and meet either of the following requirements at the time you file Form 8857. Us government form 1040x You are no longer married to, or are legally separated from, the spouse with whom you filed the joint return for which you are requesting relief. Us government form 1040x (Under this rule, you are no longer married if you are widowed. Us government form 1040x ) You were not a member of the same household (explained below) as the spouse with whom you filed the joint return at any time during the 12-month per- iod ending on the date you file Form 8857. Us government form 1040x Members of the same household. Us government form 1040x   You and your spouse are not members of the same household if you are living apart and are estranged. Us government form 1040x However, you and your spouse are considered members of the same household if any of the following conditions are met. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse reside in the same dwelling. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse reside in separate dwellings but are not estranged, and one of you is temporarily absent from the other's household as explained in (3) below. Us government form 1040x Either spouse is temporarily absent from the household and it is reasonable to assume that the absent spouse will return to the household, and the household or a substantially equivalent household is maintained in anticipation of the absent spouse's return. Us government form 1040x Examples of temporary absences include absence due to imprisonment, illness, business, vacation, military service, or education. Us government form 1040x Burden of proof. Us government form 1040x   You must be able to prove that you meet all of the requirements for separation of liability relief (except actual knowledge) and that you did not transfer property to avoid tax (discussed later). Us government form 1040x You must also establish the basis for allocating the erroneous items. Us government form 1040x Limitations on Relief Even if you meet the requirements discussed previously, separation of liability relief will not be granted in the following situations. Us government form 1040x The IRS proves that you and your spouse (or former spouse) transferred assets to one another as part of a fraudulent scheme. Us government form 1040x A fraudulent scheme includes a scheme to defraud the IRS or another third party, such as a creditor, former spouse, or business partner. Us government form 1040x The IRS proves that at the time you signed your joint return, you had actual knowledge (explained below) of any erroneous items giving rise to the deficiency that were allocable to your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x For the definition of erroneous items, see Erroneous Items earlier under Innocent Spouse Relief. Us government form 1040x Your spouse (or former spouse) transferred property to you to avoid tax or the payment of tax. Us government form 1040x See Transfers of Property To Avoid Tax , later. Us government form 1040x Actual Knowledge The relief discussed here does not apply to any part of the understated tax due to your spouse's (or former spouse's) erroneous items of which you had actual knowledge. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse (or former spouse) remain jointly and severally liable for this part of the understated tax. Us government form 1040x If you had actual knowledge of only a portion of an erroneous item, the IRS will not grant relief for that portion of the item. Us government form 1040x You had actual knowledge of an erroneous item if: You knew that an item of unreported income was received. Us government form 1040x (This rule applies whether or not there was a receipt of cash. Us government form 1040x ) You knew of the facts that made an incorrect deduction or credit unallowable. Us government form 1040x For a false or inflated deduction, you knew that the expense was not incurred, or not incurred to the extent shown on the tax return. Us government form 1040x Knowledge of the source of an erroneous item is not sufficient to establish actual knowledge. Us government form 1040x Also, your actual knowledge may not be inferred when you merely had a reason to know of the erroneous item. Us government form 1040x Similarly, the IRS does not have to establish that you knew of the source of an erroneous item in order to establish that you had actual knowledge of the item itself. Us government form 1040x Your actual knowledge of the proper tax treatment of an erroneous item is not relevant for purposes of demonstrating that you had actual knowledge of that item. Us government form 1040x Neither is your actual knowledge of how the erroneous item was treated on the tax return. Us government form 1040x For example, if you knew that your spouse received dividend income, relief is not available for that income even if you did not know it was taxable. Us government form 1040x Example. Us government form 1040x Bill and Karen Green filed a joint return showing Karen's wages of $50,000 and Bill's self-employment income of $10,000. Us government form 1040x The IRS audited their return and found that Bill did not report $20,000 of self-employment income. Us government form 1040x The additional income resulted in a $6,000 understated tax, plus interest and penalties. Us government form 1040x After obtaining a legal separation from Bill, Karen filed Form 8857 to request separation of liability relief. Us government form 1040x The IRS proved that Karen actually knew about the $20,000 of additional income at the time she signed the joint return. Us government form 1040x Bill is liable for all of the understated tax, interest, and penalties because all of it was due to his unreported income. Us government form 1040x Karen is also liable for the understated tax, interest, and penalties due to the $20,000 of unreported income because she actually knew of the item. Us government form 1040x The IRS can collect the entire $6,000 plus interest and penalties from either Karen or Bill because they are jointly and individually liable for it. Us government form 1040x Factors supporting actual knowledge. Us government form 1040x   The IRS may rely on all facts and circumstances in determining whether you actually knew of an erroneous item at the time you signed the return. Us government form 1040x The following are examples of factors the IRS may use. Us government form 1040x Whether you made a deliberate effort to avoid learning about the item in order to be shielded from liability. Us government form 1040x Whether you and your spouse (or former spouse) jointly owned the property that resulted in the erroneous item. Us government form 1040x Exception for spousal abuse or domestic violence. Us government form 1040x   Even if you had actual knowledge, you may still qualify for relief if you establish that: You were the victim of spousal abuse or domestic violence before signing the return, and Because of that abuse, you did not challenge the treatment of any items on the return because you were afraid your spouse (or former spouse) would retaliate against you. Us government form 1040x   If you establish that you signed your joint return under duress (threat of harm or other form of coercion), then it is not a joint return, and you are not liable for any tax shown on that return or any tax deficiency for that return. Us government form 1040x However, you may be required to file a separate return for that tax year. Us government form 1040x For more information about duress, see the instructions for Form 8857. Us government form 1040x Transfers of Property To Avoid Tax If your spouse (or former spouse) transfers property (or the right to property) to you for the main purpose of avoiding tax or payment of tax, the tax liability allocated to you will be increased by the fair market value of the property on the date of the transfer. Us government form 1040x The increase may not be more than the entire amount of the liability. Us government form 1040x A transfer will be presumed to have as its main purpose the avoidance of tax or payment of tax if the transfer is made after the date that is 1 year before the date on which the IRS sent its first letter of proposed deficiency. Us government form 1040x This presumption will not apply if: The transfer was made under a divorce decree, separate maintenance agreement, or a written instrument incident to such an agreement, or You establish that the transfer did not have as its main purpose the avoidance of tax or payment of tax. Us government form 1040x If the presumption does not apply, but the IRS can establish that the purpose of the transfer was the avoidance of tax or payment of tax, the tax liability allocated to you will be increased as explained above. Us government form 1040x Equitable Relief If you do not qualify for innocent spouse relief, separation of liability relief, or relief from liability arising from community property law, you may still be relieved of responsibility for tax, interest, and penalties through equitable relief. Us government form 1040x Unlike innocent spouse relief or separation of liability relief, you can get equitable relief from an understated tax (defined earlier under Innocent Spouse Relief ) or an underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x An underpaid tax is an amount of tax you properly reported on your return but you have not paid. Us government form 1040x For example, your joint 2009 return shows that you and your spouse owed $5,000. Us government form 1040x You paid $2,000 with the return. Us government form 1040x You have an underpaid tax of $3,000. Us government form 1040x Conditions for Getting Equitable Relief You may qualify for equitable relief if you meet all of the following conditions. Us government form 1040x You are not eligible for innocent spouse relief, separation of liability relief, or relief from liability arising from community property law. Us government form 1040x You have an understated tax or an underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x You did not pay the tax. Us government form 1040x However, see Refunds , later, for situations in which you are entitled to a refund of payments you made. Us government form 1040x You establish that, taking into account all the facts and circumstances, it would be unfair to hold you liable for the understated or underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x See Factors for Determining Whether To Grant Equitable Relief, later. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse (or former spouse) did not transfer assets to one another as a part of a fraudulent scheme. Us government form 1040x A fraudulent scheme includes a scheme to defraud the IRS or another third party, such as a creditor, former spouse, or business partner. Us government form 1040x Your spouse (or former spouse) did not transfer property to you for the main purpose of avoiding tax or the payment of tax. Us government form 1040x See Transfers of Property To Avoid Tax, earlier, under Separation of Liability Relief. Us government form 1040x You did not file or fail to file your return with the intent to commit fraud. Us government form 1040x The income tax liability from which you seek relief must be attributable to an item of the spouse (or former spouse) with whom you filed the joint return, unless one of the following exceptions applies: The item is attributable or partially attributable to you solely due to the operation of community property law. Us government form 1040x If you meet this exception, that item will be considered attributable to your spouse (or former spouse) for purposes of equitable relief. Us government form 1040x If the item is titled in your name, the item is presumed to be attributable to you. Us government form 1040x However, you can rebut this presumption based on the facts and circumstances. Us government form 1040x You did not know, and had no reason to know, that funds intended for the payment of tax were misappropriated by your spouse (or former spouse) for his or her benefit. Us government form 1040x If you meet this exception, the IRS will consider granting equitable relief although the underpaid tax may be attributable in part or in full to your item, and only to the extent the funds intended for payment were taken by your spouse (or former spouse). Us government form 1040x You establish that you were the victim of spousal abuse or domestic violence before signing the return, and that, as a result of the prior abuse, you did not challenge the treatment of any items on the return for fear of your spouse's (or former spouse's) retaliation. Us government form 1040x If you meet this exception, relief will be considered although the understated tax or underpaid tax may be attributable in part or in full to your item. Us government form 1040x Factors for Determining Whether To Grant Equitable Relief The IRS will consider all of the facts and circumstances in order to determine whether it is unfair to hold you responsible for the understated or underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x The following are examples of factors that the IRS will consider to determine whether to grant equitable relief. Us government form 1040x The IRS will consider all factors and weigh them appropriately. Us government form 1040x Relevant Factors The following are examples of factors that may be relevant to whether the IRS will grant equitable relief. Us government form 1040x Whether you are separated (whether legally or not) or divorced from your spouse. Us government form 1040x A temporary absence, such as an absence due to imprisonment, illness, business, vacation, military service, or education, is not considered separation for this purpose. Us government form 1040x A temporary absence is one where it is reasonable to assume that the absent spouse will return to the household, and the household or a substantially equivalent household is maintained in anticipation of the absent spouse's return. Us government form 1040x Whether you would suffer a significant economic hardship if relief is not granted. Us government form 1040x (In other words, you would not be able to pay your reasonable basic living expenses. Us government form 1040x ) Whether you have a legal obligation under a divorce decree or agreement to pay the tax. Us government form 1040x This factor will not weigh in favor of relief if you knew or had reason to know, when entering into the divorce decree or agreement, that your former spouse would not pay the income tax liability. Us government form 1040x Whether you received a significant benefit (beyond normal support) from the underpaid tax or item causing the understated tax. Us government form 1040x (For a definition of significant benefit, see Indications of Unfairness for Innocent Spouse Relief earlier. Us government form 1040x ) Whether you have made a good faith effort to comply with federal income tax laws for the tax year for which you are requesting relief or the following years. Us government form 1040x Whether you knew or had reason to know about the items causing the understated tax or that the tax would not be paid, as explained next. Us government form 1040x Knowledge or reason to know. Us government form 1040x   In the case of an underpaid tax, the IRS will consider whether you did not know and had no reason to know that your spouse (or former spouse) would not pay the income tax liability. Us government form 1040x   In the case of an income tax liability that arose from an understated tax, the IRS will consider whether you did not know and had no reason to know of the item causing the understated tax. Us government form 1040x Reason to know of the item giving rise to the understated tax will not be weighed more heavily than other factors. Us government form 1040x Actual knowledge of the item giving rise to the understated tax, however, is a strong factor weighing against relief. Us government form 1040x This strong factor may be overcome if the factors in favor of equitable relief are particularly compelling. Us government form 1040x Reason to know. Us government form 1040x   In determining whether you had reason to know, the IRS will consider your level of education, any deceit or evasiveness of your spouse (or former spouse), your degree of involvement in the activity generating the income tax liability, your involvement in business and household financial matters, your business or financial expertise, and any lavish or unusual expenditures compared with past spending levels. Us government form 1040x Example. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse filed a joint 2009 return. Us government form 1040x That return showed you owed $10,000. Us government form 1040x You had $5,000 of your own money and you took out a loan to pay the other $5,000. Us government form 1040x You gave 2 checks for $5,000 each to your spouse to pay the $10,000 liability. Us government form 1040x Without telling you, your spouse took the $5,000 loan and spent it on himself. Us government form 1040x You and your spouse were divorced in 2010. Us government form 1040x In addition, you had no knowledge or reason to know at the time you signed the return that the tax would not be paid. Us government form 1040x These facts indicate to the IRS that it may be unfair to hold you liable for the $5,000 underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x The IRS will consider these facts, together with all of the other facts and circumstances, to determine whether to grant you equitable relief from the $5,000 underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x Factors Weighing in Favor of Equitable Relief The following are examples of factors that will weigh in favor of equitable relief, but will not weigh against equitable relief. Us government form 1040x Whether your spouse (or former spouse) abused you. Us government form 1040x Whether you were in poor mental or physical health on the date you signed the return or at the time you requested relief. Us government form 1040x Refunds If you are granted relief, refunds are: Permitted under innocent spouse relief as explained later under Limit on Amount of Refund . Us government form 1040x Not permitted under separation of liability relief. Us government form 1040x Permitted in limited circumstances under equitable relief, as explained under Refunds Under Equitable Relief. Us government form 1040x Proof Required The IRS will only refund payments you made with your own money. Us government form 1040x However, you must provide proof that you made the payments with your own money. Us government form 1040x Examples of proof are a copy of your bank statement or a canceled check. Us government form 1040x No proof is required if your individual refund was used by the IRS to pay a tax you owed on a joint tax return for another year. Us government form 1040x Refunds Under Equitable Relief In the following situations, you are eligible to receive a refund of certain payments you made. Us government form 1040x Underpaid tax. Us government form 1040x   If you are granted relief for an underpaid tax, you are eligible for a refund of separate payments that you made after July 22, 1998. Us government form 1040x However, you are not eligible for refunds of payments made with the joint return, joint payments, or payments that your spouse (or former spouse) made. Us government form 1040x For example, withholding tax and estimated tax payments cannot be refunded because they are considered made with the joint return. Us government form 1040x   The amount of the refund is subject to the limit discussed later under Limit on Amount of Refund. Us government form 1040x Understated tax. Us government form 1040x   If you are granted relief for an understated tax, you are eligible for a refund of certain payments made under an installment agreement that you entered into with the IRS, if you have not defaulted on the installment agreement. Us government form 1040x You are not in default if the IRS did not issue you a notice of default or take any action to end the installment agreement. Us government form 1040x Only installment payments made after the date you filed Form 8857 are eligible for a refund. Us government form 1040x   The amount of the refund is subject to the limit discussed next. Us government form 1040x Limit on Amount of Refund The amount of your refund is limited. Us government form 1040x Read the following chart to find out the limit. Us government form 1040x IF you file Form 8857. Us government form 1040x . Us government form 1040x . Us government form 1040x THEN the refund cannot be more than. Us government form 1040x . Us government form 1040x . Us government form 1040x Within 3 years after filing your return The part of the tax paid within 3 years (plus any extension of time for filing your return) before you filed Form 8857. Us government form 1040x After the 3-year period, but within 2 years from the time you paid the tax The tax you paid within 2 years immediately before you filed Form 8857. Us government form 1040x Filled-in Form 8857 This part explains how Janie Boulder fills out Form 8857 to request innocent spouse relief. Us government form 1040x Janie and Joe Boulder filed a joint tax return for 2007. Us government form 1040x They claimed one dependency exemption for their son Michael. Us government form 1040x Their return was adjusted by the IRS because Joe did not report a $5,000 award he won that year. Us government form 1040x Janie did not know about the award when the return was filed. Us government form 1040x They agreed to the adjustment but could not pay the additional amount due of $815 ($650 tax + $165 penalty and interest). Us government form 1040x Janie and Joe were divorced on May 13, 2009. Us government form 1040x In February 2010, Janie filed her 2009 federal income tax return as head of household. Us government form 1040x She expected a refund of $1,203. Us government form 1040x In May 2010, she received a notice informing her that the IRS had offset her refund against the $815 owed on her joint 2007 income tax return and that she had a right to file Form 8857. Us government form 1040x Janie applies the conditions listed earlier under Innocent Spouse Relief to see if she qualifies for relief. Us government form 1040x Janie meets the first and second conditions because the joint tax return they filed has an understated tax due to Joe's erroneous item. Us government form 1040x Janie believes she meets the third condition. Us government form 1040x She did not know about the award and had no reason to know about it because of the secretive way Joe conducted his financial affairs. Us government form 1040x Janie believes she meets the fourth condition. Us government form 1040x She believes it would be unfair to be held liable for the tax because she did not benefit from the award. Us government form 1040x Joe spent it on personal items for his use only. Us government form 1040x Because Janie believes she qualifies for innocent spouse relief, she first completes Part I of Form 8857 to determine if she should file the form. Us government form 1040x In Part I, she makes all entries under the Tax Year 1 column because she is requesting relief for only one year. Us government form 1040x Part I Line 1. Us government form 1040x   She enters “2007” on line 1 because this is the tax year for which she is requesting relief. Us government form 1040x Line 2. Us government form 1040x   She checks the box because she wants a refund. Us government form 1040x Note. Us government form 1040x Because the IRS used her individual refund to pay the tax owed on the joint tax return, she does not need to provide proof of payment. Us government form 1040x Line 3. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because the IRS did not use her share of a joint refund to pay Joe's past-due debts. Us government form 1040x Line 4. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “Yes” box because she filed a joint tax return for tax year 2007. Us government form 1040x Line 5. Us government form 1040x   She skips this line because she checked the “Yes” box on line 4. Us government form 1040x Part II Line 6. Us government form 1040x   She enters her name, address, social security number, county, and best daytime phone number. Us government form 1040x Part III Line 7. Us government form 1040x   She enters Joe's name, address, social security number, and best daytime phone number. Us government form 1040x Line 8. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “divorced since” box and enters the date she was divorced as “05/13/2009. Us government form 1040x ” She attaches a copy of her entire divorce decree (not Illustrated) to the form. Us government form 1040x Line 9. Us government form 1040x   She checks the box for “High school diploma, equivalent, or less,” because she had completed high school when her 2007 joint tax return was filed. Us government form 1040x Line 10. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because she was not a victim of spousal abuse or domestic violence. Us government form 1040x Line 11. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because neither she nor Joe incurred any large expenses during the year for which she wants relief. Us government form 1040x Line 12. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “Yes” box because she signed the 2007 joint tax return. Us government form 1040x Line 13. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because she did not have a mental or physical condition when the return was filed and does not have one now. Us government form 1040x Part IV Line 14. Us government form 1040x   Because she was not involved in preparing the return, she checks the box, “You were not involved in preparing the returns. Us government form 1040x ” Line 15. Us government form 1040x   She checks the box, “You did not know anything was incorrect or missing” because she did not know that Joe had received a $5,000 award. Us government form 1040x She explains this in the space provided. Us government form 1040x Line 16. Us government form 1040x   She checks the box, “You knew that person had income” because she knew Joe had income from wages. Us government form 1040x She also lists Joe's income. Us government form 1040x Under “Type of Income” she enters “wages. Us government form 1040x ” Under “Who paid it to that person,” she enters the name of Joe's employer, “Allied. Us government form 1040x ” Under “Tax Year 1” she enters the amount of Joe's wages, “$40,000. Us government form 1040x ” Because she is only requesting relief for one tax year, she leaves the entry spaces for “Tax Year 2” and “Tax Year 3” blank. Us government form 1040x Line 17. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because she did not know any amount was owed to the IRS when the 2007 return was signed. Us government form 1040x Line 18. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because, when the return was signed, she was not having financial problems. Us government form 1040x Line 19. Us government form 1040x   She checks the box, “You were not involved in handling money for the household” because Joe handled all the money for the household. Us government form 1040x She provides additional information in the space provided. Us government form 1040x Line 20. Us government form 1040x   She checks the “No” box because Joe has never transferred money or property to her. Us government form 1040x Part V Line 21. Us government form 1040x   She enters the number “1” on both the line for “Adults” and the line for “Children” because her current household consists of herself and her son. Us government form 1040x Line 22. Us government form 1040x   She enters her average monthly income for her entire household. Us government form 1040x Line 23. Us government form 1040x   She lists her assets, which are $500 for the fair market value of a car, $450 in her checking account, and $100 in her savings account. Us government form 1040x Signing and mailing Form 8857. Us government form 1040x    Janie signs and dates the form. Us government form 1040x She attaches the copy of her divorce decree (not illustrated) required by line 8. Us government form 1040x Finally, she sends the form to the IRS address or fax number shown in the instructions for Form 8857.
