IRS Debt – Can Bankruptcy Help?

IRS Debt, Tax Relief & Bankruptcy

Did you know you may be able to discharge Federal and State tax debt by filing bankruptcy?  At Hindley & Henderson, our experienced bankruptcy attorneys can explain what taxes can be discharged in a bankruptcy, and how you can get out from under your IRS debt.

Create a Payment Plan for Tax Arrears

Taxes that came due within the last 3 years can be put on a payment plan over the next few years regardless of whether the IRS or Franchise Tax Board wants to be on a payment plan.

Discharge old IRS/FTB Debt

Older taxes are potentially dischargeable with no obligation to pay on them again.  Your tax issues may be resolved under chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy; meeting with one of our attorneys can help you determine which chapter best suits your situation.

Can My IRS Taxes be Discharged?

Several factors can determine whether or not your taxes can be discharged, such as:

• The due date for filing a tax return was at least 3 years ago
• A tax return was filed at least 2 years ago
• The tax return was not fraudulent
• The tax assessment period is at least 240 days old
• The taxpayer is not guilty of tax evasion
