Course Description

Many married taxpayers choose to file a joint tax return because of certain benefits this filing status allows them. When filing jointly, both taxpayers are jointly and severally liable for the tax and any additions to tax, interest, or penalties that arise from the joint return even if they later divorce. Joint and several liability means that each taxpayer is legally responsible for the entire liability. Thus, both spouses on a married filing jointly return are generally held responsible for all the tax due even if one spouse earned all the income or claimed improper deductions or credits. In some cases, however, a spouse can get relief from being jointly and severally liable.

Innocent Spouse Relief is an application (Form 8857) by an “innocent” spouse for relief from the tax liabilities of the other spouse that arise as a result of filing a joint federal income tax return. Innocent spouse relief has been around for a long time, but in 2013 the IRS issued Rev. Proc. 2013-34, an extremely sophisticated and detailed procedure for applying for relief in a variety of circumstances, including circumstances where there has been coercion, intimidation, or abuse.

He has personally handled a multitude of cases including defending tax audits, negotiating favorable settlements for back taxes, setting up tax payment plans, arranging release of tax liens and levies, defending criminal tax fraud cases and advising those with foreign bank accounts who have not complied with reporting requirements. He represents clients with multi-million dollar assets at stake as well as those with only thousands in assets.

Born and raised in metro Detroit, Michigan, Venar returned to open a tax problem resolution practice when he saw the alarming number of taxpayers struggling due to the downturn in the local economy.

In addition to years of experience practicing as a Michigan tax attorney, Venar has owned or operated several small businesses, including an accounting and tax preparation business, supermarkets and a hotel. His business background gives him a solid understanding of the challenges facing small businesses today.

Venar is an award-winning tax attorney ranked as a Top Lawyer in the field of Tax Law. Mr. Ayar has a Master of Laws in Taxation – the highest degree available in tax, held by only a small number of the country’s attorneys.

    Thank you Mr.Ayar for clarifying quite a few items when it comes to representation and preparation of form 8857. I can now even better answer the clients I have who have asked me about filing this form.
