I understand that with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, provided our IRS taxes are dischargeable (qualify with the 3-year/2-year/240-day rules) they will be gone as with other dischargeable debts, however the lien they placed on our house will not go away. I have 3 questions. 1. Is there any way to get this removed besides paying off the amount owed in payments or an offer in compromise, etc., even after the BK has been filed? 2. If there is no way to have it removed how does one go forward with making an offer to pay it somehow to get it removed over time if the debt is gone? 3. Is the amount of the lien affected by how much equity there is in the property at the time of the BK filing? Is that then the amount of the lien and what would need to be paid to have it removed?
