IRS Debt

If you have unpaid federal tax obligations, you may be able to discharge those debts in a personal bankruptcy filing. The rules, however, are very specific. You want an experienced lawyer at your side throughout the process, someone who fully understands the laws and regulations.

Helping You Discharge Federal Income Tax Debts Through Bankruptcy


Under federal law, you can discharge tax debts that are more than three years old, and which have been assessed more than 240 days prior to a bankruptcy filing. You cannot discharge unfiled tax obligations, and you may not discharge tax debts that constitute tax fraud. In addition, federal tax liens attached to your assets may not be dischargeable.

If your tax debts are not dischargeable under Chapter 7, you may be able to set up a plan to repay non-dischargeable taxes without interest or penalties under Chapter 13.

We have a thorough understanding of the requirements under the law and can assess whether you have a reasonable chance of discharging tax debts. Speak with us today to learn more about your specific circumstances.
