Innocent Spouse Relief: Mental and Physical Abuse


Understand the stigma and uncertainty surrounding abuse allegations in a legal context.

Under I.R.C. § 6015(c) and (f) if a requesting spouse can establish physical or emotional abuse then such abuse can negate other facts that would not necessarily allow relief under I.R.C. § 6015. This white paper reviews what defines patterns of abuse, discusses how domestic violence is prevalent in every community, and reviews how abuse relates to IRS assessed penalties.
