Innocent/Injured Spouse Relief and Additional Information - FAQ

  • Does Georgia have Innocent Spouse rules?

    The Georgia legislature passed Innocent Spouse Legislation during 1999. Generally, a person must have been treated as an Innocent Spouse under IRS guidelines before Innocent Spouse status can be considered for Georgia purposes.

  • Every year my refund is offset to a liability my spouse has with the Department of Human Resources. The IRS instructs me to submit an Injured Spouse form with my return when I file. What should I submit with my Georgia return?

    It is not necessary to submit a copy of the Injured Spouse form with your Georgia return. When you receive the offset notice, submit your paperwork to the Department of Human Resources.
