statutory notice of deficiency


K

Kitten

Last year, I have requested innocent spouse relief for the year 2000,
my spouse who was living with me at that time did not tell me he had had
income, and I happened to file taxes for only my income. just lately I
started receiving letters from IRS that my request has been granted.

However, here is one of confusing letters by IRS, after they almost made
me feel so good about my request was granted.

"In order for IRS to complete the processing on this case, a Statutory
Notice of Deficiency (as requested by law) must be issued to BOTH the
taxpayers whose names appear on the return. A period of 90 days is
allowed for a response to the Notice of Deficiency. When the account is
closed, ONLY the responsible party have will be assessed the tax shown
on the CP2000 dated xx/xx/2002."

Please someone tell me what I am supposed to do now? Responding to the
Notice of Deficiency? How? When? I am a foreigner and living in this
country alone, every time things like this happen, the first thing I
have to do is try to think what that really means. I am in the middle
of a divorce now, and my separated spouse is missing. I do not know
where he is at all. What does this letter from IRS mean exactly?, and
what will happen to me? Is the fact my divorcing spouse is missing
going to cause a trouble to me? What do I have to do? I know I sound
so ignorant, but please help.

All the responses from you kind people will be appreciated.

The deficiency notice says that it *must* be sent to both spouses. And it
also says that your response must come before the 90 days are up. Walk into
an IRS office with the notice granting innocent spuse relief, and ask them
to clear you. Also, mail a copy of the innocent spouse notice to the
department that issued the deficiency notice.
