Eliminating Tax Debt through Bankruptcy

Delinquent taxes can cause a major burden financially. By filing bankruptcy, some or all of your IRS tax debt, or state tax debt may be discharged. During a consultation with Englett and Associates we will determine whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you with tax relief.

Discharge of Tax Debt - Guidelines under Bankruptcy Code

Tax debt may be discharged under both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy guidelines. You may be eligible for tax debt relief if ALL of the following applies:

The taxes must be income taxes
You have not committed tax fraud, or tax evasion in any way
The original due date of the tax liability (for the tax debt you wish to eliminate) was due three years prior to filing for bankruptcy
The income tax return must be filed with IRS at least two years before we file the bankruptcy even if the debt is three years old
The taxes must have been filed on time
Tax assessment was made at least 240 days before filing bankruptcy

Types of Tax Debt

There are several different tax debts you may owe. These include federal income tax, property tax, Social Security tax, state sales tax, or sales and employment tax, (if you own a business). Most people can have the greatest amount of tax debt removed by filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, rather than Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tax law is complex however, and there are many exceptions that apply to relief of tax debt.

Tax Debt not Eligible for Discharge through Bankruptcy

Sometimes tax debt is not eligible for discharge through bankruptcy. In this case, Englett and Associates may be able to negotiate a payment plan for you that allows you to pay lower interest on unpaid tax debt. We may also be able to get a reduction in penalties from the IRS. By filing bankruptcy, you can prevent IRS levy on your home and other assets due to delinquent taxes you owe as well.
