San Diego Bankruptcy Tax Attorney
Income tax debts may be eligible for discharge by filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy may provide a full discharge of many debts by liquidating an individual’s assets. Chapter 13 bankruptcy discharges debts by forming a repayment plan to pay the debts over time. Whether you choose to file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, there are certain tax debts that can be discharged, and there are other tax debts that cannot be discharged.
John has successfully filed and received a bankruptcy discharge for over 500 clients. Such bankruptcy filings were almost entirely motivated by the desire to discharge taxes in bankruptcy.
While bankruptcy may allow you to discharge several tax-related debts, especially those relating to income tax, there are some tax debts that cannot be discharged. These non-dischargeable tax debts are usually unrelated to income tax, such as tax liens, property taxes, and employment taxes. Tax debts that cannot be discharged may be negotiated in a payment plan with the IRS. Please contact us for San Diego Bankruptcy Tax Attorney Services: (619) 437-4377.
