What Tax Debts Are Dischargeable?
Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be used to eliminate or restructure tax debts. In order for tax debt to be dischargeable the following criteria must be met:
- The debt must be at least three years old
- Tax returns in question must have been filed at least two years prior to bankruptcy
- Tax assessment must have taken place at least 240 days prior to bankruptcy
- Filer has not been implicated in tax evasion or tax fraud
State and Federal taxes can be confusing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for answers to your questions and guidance about the debt relief options available to you.
What If My Tax Debt Is Not Dischargeable?
If your taxes cannot be completely discharged, we may be able to provide relief by creating a tax payment plan that will allow you to repay the taxes at a lower interest rate than the IRS would otherwise charge. We may also be able to get your IRS penalties reduced. Filing bankruptcy can also stop a foreclosure action by the IRS to collect back taxes.
