Learn How Filing Can Affect Your Taxes

Many people mistakenly believe that filing bankruptcy is not an effective way to deal with tax problems. This is not true. Although this is a complex area of the law, some tax debts can be discharged in bankruptcy and filing may be the best solution for many people.

Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys can help you solve your financial difficulties. Call (513) 657-3531 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation. Serving Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

Bankruptcy May Provide the Time You Need to Pay Your Tax Debt

If you have substantial IRS debt, state tax debt, or both, it is extremely important to work with an experienced lawyer who has dealt with these problems before.

At the Law Office of Goering & Goering, LLC, you can do exactly that.

We will:

  • Carefully evaluate the type of tax debt you owe, when those taxes were assessed, and other factors to determine whether these debts may be eligible for discharge
  • Help you evaluate whether eliminating other debts through a Chapter 7 filing will enable you to repay tax debt that is not otherwise dischargeable
  • Help you consider Chapter 13 bankruptcy as a means of catching up on taxes by making manageable monthly payments over three to five years, at no interest

What Are Requirements for Discharging Tax Debt Through Bankruptcy?

While some types of tax debt are dischargeable, not all tax debt is dischargeable, and certain actions by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can place additional restrictions on how you liquidate assets.

In order to discharge tax debt through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debt generally must meet certain qualifications, including:

  • In the vast majority of cases, only income taxes can be discharged
  • Tax discharges are not generally available for tax penalties, payroll taxes or other types of non-income tax debt
  • The tax debt must be at least three years old, and you must have filed proper tax returns
  • If you have committed tax evasion or fraud, then discharge is highly unlikely
  • If you wish to liquidate property that the IRS has placed under a federal lien, the bankruptcy does not dissolve the lien
