The IRS states that, in order to qualify for Separation of Liability, you must “be divorced or legally separated from the spouse with whom you filed the joint return, or you are widowed, have not been a member of the same household as the spouse with whom you filed the joint return at any time during the 12-month period ending on the date you request relief.”
You cannot qualify for Separation of Liability if, at the time you signed the joint return, you had actual knowledge of the item(s) that gave rise to the understatement of tax.
