Associate Ashley Kerins authors an article in the California Tax Lawyer titled “A New Home for Innocent Spouses? The Bankruptcy Court’s Jurisdiction Over Equitable Relief Innocent Spouse Claims.” In the article, Ms. Kerins discusses the recent decision in the In re: Pendergraft, 2017 WL 1091935 (S.D. Tex. Mar. 22, 2017) case which may open the door for debtor-taxpayers to assert innocent spouse claims in the bankruptcy court. She explains how Pendergraft provides some authority that a bankruptcy court had subject matter jurisdiction to grant innocent spouse relief if the IRS had filed a proof of claim and the debtor-taxpayer has followed the procedure outlined in IRC section 6015(f).
