Even though my spouse and I filed jointly, am I simply stuck for the taxes?

When you file jointly, both parties assume liability for the taxes owed. However, under the innocent spouse provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, a spouse can be excused from liability if he/she can prove that it would be inequitable for the innocent spouse to be held responsible for the liability. Filing for divorce and being separated during the years in issue may have an impact on your liability. You should have this checked out by a tax professional.
