Tax Debt Bankruptcy

There are several possible solutions to your tax debt. After consulting with you further, we may suggest filing for bankruptcy. Through Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, you can halt tax penalties and interest right away. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will receive an immediate stay and have qualifying tax debts discharged. Through Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can establish a reorganization of your debts through committing to a 3-5 year payment plan. The IRS offers a 6-month plan, but having a longer span of time can offer you more ease and less pressure. 

Discharging Unpaid Taxes

The U.S. Bankruptcy Code allows a discharge of certain back taxes, but there are conditions that apply. Firstly, the taxes must be categorized as personal income tax. In general, most business taxes are not eligible for discharge. Whether a business can have their back taxes eradicated depends on the classification they fall under, such as payroll or sales taxes. Secondly, the taxes have to be at least 3 years old. Taxes that have accumulated sooner than that may not be dischargeable. Furthermore, there must be no evidence of taxpayer misconduct. Someone’s individual taxes may not get discharged through bankruptcy if the back taxes were from misconduct, like filing a tax return that was fraudulent or failing to file altogether. If the IRS has sent you a certified letter saying that you owe taxes, you must respond within 30 days. 

Do not ignore any letters from the IRS regarding back tax debt. Reach out to our knowledgeable tax attorney about what to do next.
