I went to an attorney last year because I had some old state tax debt. I was advised by the attorney that the tax debt could be placed in a Chapter 7 and discharged. I didn't have any other real debt and the taxes were the only reason I even considered the bankruptcy. In fact the $1,500 fee I paid him was more than all the other debt I had. My home and car were current therefore, I was in no danger of losing either. I was advised the tax debt could be discharged an I moved forward with the bankruptcy. Yesterday the state contacted me stating I not only still owe the debt, but I owe an additional $5K in interest because tax debt due to audit can not be put in a bankruptcy. I contact my attorney's office and they said they didn't know they only understand bankruptcy law.In my initial call to my attorney's office after receiving the letter from the state. I was told to just show them my discharge papers. After speaking with the state and being informed that tax debt due to an audit couldn't be placed in a bankruptcy I called the attorney's office back and that's when I was told they only understand bankruptcy law. I have left messages for someone to call me back, but I haven't heard from anyone since that last nonsensical conversation. I trusted them to give me proper advice. I made a decision based on the fact that the debt was over three years old that it could be included. If I had known the truth I would not have filed bankruptcy. Now my credit is damaged for the next 10 years, I owe the tax debt which I cannot afford and now my home is in danger of being taken by the state to pay the tax debt. I need help.
