According to Law360, a New Mexico woman isn't liable for tax deficiencies related to her former husband's work in 2010 and 2015 because, among other things, she didn't know about the understatements on their joint returns, the U.S. Tax Court said on October 6, 2021.
April Gonzales didn't have knowledge of understatements on her jointly filed taxes because she wasn't substantially involved in filling them out, the court said. Although she had access to the family's financial information, erroneous deductions on their returns were based on mileage calculations unrelated to that information, the Tax Court said.
