Taxes are not generally dischargeable in Redford bankruptcy.

It can still be done, however. Qualifying for the IRS tax forgiveness program means that if you file for bankruptcy you can get unpaid back taxes, penalties, and fines eliminated. The experts at Kostopoulos Associates are here to assist you in finding out if you can qualify.

To qualify for IRS tax debt forgiveness, you have to meet these three standards:

  1. Tax debts have to be reviewed by the IRS at least 240 days before filing for bankruptcy.
  2. Your tax returns for the debt must be on file for more than two years.
  3. The debt forgiveness tax you owe the IRS has to be at least three years old.

If you meet those requirements, then filing for Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy can make it against the law for creditors to try to collect on your debts. An automatic stay will be activated that makes collection attempts illegal. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy Redford, there’s a good chance that your debts will be wiped clean within 90 days of filing your lawsuit. But, when that bankruptcy period is over, the IRS tax forgiveness program is able to resume pursuing any debts that weren’t dismissed.

If it ends up that not all of your debts are forgiven, you can still set up a manageable structured payment plan using Chapter 13 bankruptcy
