When joint return liability divided
- • showing of marital status and hardship
- • rules
Notwithstanding ORS 316.367 (Joint return by spouses in a marriage), upon petition to the Director of the Department of Revenue by one spouse who has filed a joint tax return, the Department of Revenue may terminate the joint and several liability of each spouse and divide the liability equally between both spouses for the tax, penalty and interest due for the tax year that is the subject of the joint return. No petition shall be granted unless at the time of the petition, the spouses are living apart and are legally separated or divorced, and the petitioner satisfies the department that the petitioner is unable to pay the entire liability due to financial hardship. The department shall adopt rules establishing the manner in which a petitioner shall show financial hardship. [1993 c.593 §8]
