Filed for Bankruptcy?

Let Our Firm Handle Your Taxes

Even with the relief it can provide an individual or a business, bankruptcy can still be a difficult and complex process to navigate. Many believe that bankruptcy excuses them, at least temporarily, from financial accountability, but life does continue after bankruptcy and responsibilities remain.

The most forgotten issue is often taxes; bankruptcy does not excuse one from taxes and careful navigation is required when it comes time to report your earnings and file your return.

However, there are some cases in which federal tax debt can be wiped away, specifically if you've filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. To navigate these possible advantages, it is crucial that you seek professional insight into your financial situation so that you not only comply with tax regulations, but also receive the benefits and breaks you deserve during this trying time.

When can my tax debts be discharged?

If you have filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is possible to have income tax debt forgiven by the federal government. To qualify for tax debt discharges like this, several conditions must exist.

For federal income tax debt to be discharged, the debts must:

  • Be at least three years from when you filed bankruptcy
  • Be recorded in a tax return from the year of which they originate
  • Be assessed by the IRS 240 days before bankruptcy is filed
  • Not be the result of fraud
