Individual With Unreported Unemployment Income Denied Spousal Relief
The United States Tax Court sustained an IRS deficiency determination against a couple, finding that the couple failed to report as income unemployment compensation the husband received; the court denied the husband’s request for innocent spouse relief, rejecting his unsupported claim that his estranged wife received and cashed the checks without his knowledge.
A recent Tax Court decision was reported that may be of interest to individuals potentially dealing with tax litigation. J.
