TAS Takes Credit for Changes to Innocent Spouse Rule

The National Taxpayer Advocate, Nina Olson, took a bow yesterday as the IRS announced removal of the two-year statute of limitations under the Innocent Spouse program. According to Olson, she and her staff have been advocating for this change for some time now because an “innocent spouse” is often unaware of the shenanigans of his/her spouse until after the two-year period has passed from the IRS’ first collection activity, and it is really not fair to hold them to a limitations period.
