Will Your Tax Debts Be Discharged During Bankruptcy?
The rules regarding the discharge of tax debts in bankruptcy proceedings are complex. Most tax debts are not dischargeable, which means you will still have to pay them even after you have filed for bankruptcy. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your income tax debt may be discharged. However, certain conditions must be met, including:
- You must have filed tax returns for the last two years, unless you were not required to file returns during this time.
- The income tax debt must be at least three years old or it is not dischargeable.
- The IRS must have assessed the tax debt within the last 8 months.
If you meet these conditions, your income tax debt may be discharged at the end of your Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding. However, it’s important to note that even if your debt is discharged, this does not mean that a tax lien will automatically be released. If the IRS has filed a tax lien, this may remain on your property even after your bankruptcy case has been closed and your debts have been dismissed.
