By not filing Form 8958 the IRS may adjust the incomes based on the way it is reported on the W-2, 1099's or other documents. It is simply an explanation of how the incomes are allocated under the state community property laws. File the 8958 and avoid any hassle with the IRS.Leave a Comment 73 weeks ago
