As many people will attest, divorces can often get ugly. Sometimes so much so, that the former spouse seeks revenge by sending a letter to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). All your former spouse needs to do to wave this red flag is write a compelling letter to the IRS.
It doesn’t even need to be your former spouse. Sometimes former in-laws, employees, and business partners are the ones who do the dirty deed. In many cases, the allegations are completely false.
Regardless of the allegation though, these informants can cause the IRS to look at your return with a fine-toothed comb. This is just one more reason to seek a more amicable divorce and avoid making enemies along the way.
