Filing Bankruptcy Due To Judgments And Federal Income Taxes

Judgments can be discharged in bankruptcies.

  • Depending on how old federal income taxes are, it can be discharged in bankruptcies
  • Federal income tax or state income tax that is more than 3 years old from the due date, can be discharged in bankruptcy
  • This holds true only as long as the income taxes were filed timely
  • An example would be for 2014 income taxes that were due on April 15th 2015, could be discharged after April 15, 2018
  • Although income taxes may not be dischargeable, the penalties and interest incurred as a result of unpaid taxes may be dischargeable
  • Furthermore, even if an individual does not qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, assuming that taxes are dischargeable, such person can possibly decrease their income tax liability to 10% of the amount owed
  • Moreover, chapter 13 bankruptcy is a great tool that can be used to set up a payment plan with the IRS or state agency without the need to deal directly with such entities
