Tax Debt & Problems
It is nearly impossible to get rid of income taxes unless you die or in some cases, file a bankruptcy. Most people don’t realize that we can get rid of a lot of income taxes through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or get you into a fixed monthly payment for your tax debt in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Personal income taxes may be dischargeable if they are:
At least three years old;
You filed the tax returns for the years that you owe at least two years prior to filing bankruptcy;
The taxes were assessed at least 240 days prior to filing
There are no events that tolled the time periods above (tolling events can include an offer in compromise, incarceration, etc.)
Prior to coming into our office, you may wish to obtain a copy of your tax transcript for the year(s) in question from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) showing your tax history. Visit the IRS’ website at http://www.irs.gov/individuals
