Can my ex husband amend a tax return from 2010 without my consent?
Asked by: Jesica Hogan
I just received a bill (CP22A) from the IRS saying I owe money because of changes that I requested to my 2010 tax return. I am divorced now. But at the time we were married filing joint. I included my W-2 and he had his. Apparently he amended it because he had additional income that he did not include when we filed together (and I had no knowledge of).
Can he amend our joint return without my knowledge or consent. And if so, why would they send only me the bill?
