WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR TAX DEBTS, YOU HAVE OPTIONS
If you have tax debts and are planning on filing bankruptcy, then you should consult with an attorney before taking any action. The timing of your bankruptcy could allow for older tax debts to be forgiven, depending on when and how your taxes were filed.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO NEGOTIATE WITH THE IRS:
If your tax debts cannot be discharged in a bankruptcy, you may be able to negotiate easier payment terms with the IRS. IRS negotiations are possible, but they can be very lengthy, and you should be prepared to provide as many documents as you would if you were being audited.
HARDSHIP FACTORS: When working within a bureaucratic system such as the IRS, remember that there are always hardship factors that they will consider. Hardship does not always mean unemployment; medical burdens, disability, and other factors can also be considered.
Every situation is different, and you should consult with a lawyer if you think bankruptcy or an IRS negotiation might be right for you.
