Tax Bankruptcy Discharge Rules

The ability to discharge a tax in bankruptcy, and the selection of the proper bankruptcy chapter, is mainly determined by four dates;

  • the last date on which the return was due for the year of the delinquent tax
  • the date the taxpayer actually filed the applicable return
  • the date the tax in question was assessed by the IRS
  • the vicinity of the previous dates to the bankruptcy case filing date.

In addition, whether or not tax fraud is present is also relevant, as well as the type of tax involved as to the feasibility of having taxes discharged through bankruptcy.

Rest assured, when it comes to handling our client’s bankruptcy case, we do our best to put our client’s hearts and minds at ease. We truly understand the sensitivity of the matter.
