Can Taxes be discharged in Bankruptcy?
Discharging taxes in bankruptcy is real. But it is difficult to locate a professional who knows the rules and can document the filing of the returns so that they will be included in your bankruptcy. Here is the best advice you will ever find regarding discharging taxes in bankruptcy.
- Step one. Contact me regarding qualifying your taxes in bankruptcy.
- Step two. Contact a bankruptcy attorney who can determine if you qualify to file a bankruptcy.
- Step three. If step one and step two have been done correctly, your taxes will be discharged in a chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Here is what the typical client that comes into our office tells us:
I went to ABC Bankruptcy and filed a bankruptcy and none of my taxes were discharged. How come?
Here is what I tell them:
Very few attorneys understand discharging taxes in bankruptcy. They know how to file bankruptcy and if you qualify they will take your money and list the tax years you want to have discharged. The reason your taxes were not discharged is that they did not qualify under the 2 year or the 3 year rule—the returns must be filed for 2 years and it must be 3 years since the due date for filing the return.
Mr. Client, if you had waited another 3 weeks, 2 months, 1 year, (some period of time) all of your taxes would have been discharged when you filed your bankruptcy. Unfortunately your attorney either didn’t know that or didn’t care.
Attorneys know that if you walk out of their office without paying for a bankruptcy, it is unlikely you will go back after coming to someone like me. We will tell you when to see the attorney and give you the paperwork that shows the date your taxes are dischargeable in bankruptcy.
That is the plain and simple truth—there is no rocket science unless you go to the wrong professional. Call me today for a free initial confidential consultation so that your discharge of taxes will be successful.
