Some Tax Debt Can Be Discharged In Bankruptcy
If you are facing collection activities from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) or the California Department of Revenue, it may seem like the deck is stacked against you. Depending on the age and nature of your debt, however, the power may be in your hands. Filing for bankruptcy could help you put your tax debt problems behind you for good.
At the Law Office of Alec Harshey, our attorneys can work with you personally to help you determine the best way to deal with your tax debt. If bankruptcy is right for you, we can guide you through every step of the Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy process.
What Tax Debt Is Dischargeable In Bankruptcy?
In order to qualify for tax debt relief in bankruptcy, you must meet at least the following criteria:
- The due date for filing the tax returns was at least three years ago
- The return was filed at least two years ago
- The tax assessment is at least 240 days old
- You are not guilty of tax fraud or tax evasion
If your tax debt is dischargeable, you can eliminate it by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you do not qualify for Chapter 7, you can file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Our bankruptcy lawyers can help you understand all of your rights and options in regard to tax debt.
