Can I discharge my tax debt in bankruptcy?

In certain circumstances you can discharge tax debt in bankruptcy. You have to look at a number of factors, including how long the tax returns have been filed, if tax returns have been filed, and how long it’s been since the taxes were due. Of course, you must also include such factors such as income and assets. That’s why it’s important to talk to a qualified tax resolution attorney to determine whether or not bankruptcy is the correct option for you.
