In my December 1, 2010 posting, I included links to my summary of various routes available to innocent spouses relief from income tax liabilities. One of those routes is Code Section 6015(f) which allows a claim for equitable relief if certain requirements are met.

Regulations under that section limited this relief to spouses who apply for relief within two years after the date of the IRS' first collection activity. Various courts have disagreed whether that limited time period is authorized by law.
