Types of Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy can be an excellent solution for people who find themselves indebted to the IRS. However, it is not for everyone, so it is extremely important that you discuss your options with a knowledgeable Oklahoma tax lawyer to get a better idea of your options. In some cases, clients may pursue a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy case. Typically, debts will continue to be owed at the end of a Chapter 7 case or you may have to repay them in full if you choose a Chapter 13 repayment plan.
Criteria for Discharging Debt through Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
In certain situations, you may be able to discharge your debt through filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
All of the following conditions must apply for this to be an option:
- The taxes you owe are income taxes, not payroll or fraud penalties.
- There was no fraud or attempt to evade taxes involved.
- The tax return must have been due a minimum of three years before filing for bankruptcy.
- A tax return was filed for the debt you want to discharge at least two years before filing for bankruptcy.
- The tax debt was assessed by the IRS at least 240 days before you filed your bankruptcy petition or not assessed by the IRS at all.
