How Filing for Bankruptcy Affects Taxes
Located in Hartford, Connecticut, Ebenstein & Ebenstein, a former law firm, served clients at local, regional, and national levels. Attorneys at Ebenstein & Ebenstein specialized in a wide range of areas, including tax planning and tax law.
Filing for bankruptcy affects several aspects of taxes, including placing an automatic stay on tax collections. Once a bankruptcy petition is filed, any ongoing and future debt collection attempts are stopped, including those made by the IRS. Though this prevents the seizing of assets, it will not halt audits that are already underway.
Bankruptcy does not discharge all tax debt since priority items, such as student loans, child support, or drunken driving charges, cannot be removed. Further, taxes are only dischargeable if they are income taxes that are 3 years old or more. The age of these taxes is counted from the due date after any extensions that were granted. Further, dischargeable taxes must be filed by the taxpayer and assessed for at least 240 days.
