As tax day is around the corner, Mark Ashton, a partner in our Exton, Pennsylvania office, and a contributor the firm’s Pennsylvania Family Law blog, wrote a timely post on that blog entitled "Tax Time."
In that article, Mark discusses tax deductions, tax credits and joint tax returns.
I have previously blogged about the issue of innocent spouse relief and how the form has traps for the unwary. Another point to make is that while the signing of indemnification agreements, allocating responsibility for information, taxes, etc. is common during a divorce, they are only enforceable as between the parties and are not binding on the IRS.
