Federal Tax Issues
Handled by Our Salt Lake City Divorce Lawyer
There are many federal income tax issues associated with a divorce case. A few are addressed here. Alimony received is taxable income to the recipient and a tax deduction for the payer. Transfers of property in a divorce are not taxable events.
Each divorce has its own unique tax issues. To learn more about your situation, your available legal options, and how an attorney can help you, reach out to Ted Weckel, Attorney at Law. Backed by nearly three decades of experience, our divorce lawyer in Salt Lake City has an in-depth understanding of Utah family law. We can guide you every step of the way as we help you make well-informed choices about your family, finances, and future.
If an ex-spouse is audited by the IRS, they may be entitled to innocent spouse relief if they were not involved in their spouse’s business in a material way. Even if an ex-spouse does not qualify under the criteria of innocent spouse relief, they still may be eligible to avoid paying taxes on the ex-spouse’s business interests if they were a victim of domestic violence, or if they experienced economic hardship.
Ted worked for the IRS for more than 10 years as a revenue officer, on-the-job instructor, classroom instructor, congressional liaison, and as an assistant district counsel. He is quite familiar with IRS procedure and policy. Ted reviewed offers in compromise, managed collection accounts, investigated complaints made by congressional constituents against the IRS, and represented the IRS in the U.S. Tax Court after a party had been audited.
