What is innocent spouse relief?

When a married Texas resident files a joint tax return, it means they are both jointly and severally responsible for the ensuing liability. So, not only is it possible to collect the tax liability from the couple, the Internal Revenue Service can also collect it from any one spouse. This is true even if the couple divorces. For example, if one's former spouse did not report their income, then either of the spouses can be liable, unless one can qualify for innocent spouse relief.

The relationship between an employer and employee is important to understand because it determines which party will withhold taxes and which taxes are going to be withheld.
