Tax Debt and Bankruptcy
Tax debt relief is not often a component of personal bankruptcy. However, in some Chapter 7 cases certain tax debts may be eliminated. Typically, recent taxes cannot be written off through bankruptcy. Older tax debts may be dischargeable if it has been at least three years since the due date of the tax return and at least two years since the return was filed, more by link fyi.extension.wisc.edu/toughtimes/considering-foreclosure-bankruptcy/bankruptcy/.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy will not allow you to discharge tax debt, but it may be possible to work the amount you owe to the IRS into your repayment plan. This could allow you up to five years to pay your tax debt without accruing interest or penalties.
