How Does Bankruptcy Affect Filing Taxes?
The bankruptcy code has many confusing rules about tax debts and what can and cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. The most important thing to remember is that even if you have filed bankruptcy, you still have to file and pay your taxes on time.

What Will I Owe Taxes On?
A frequent question that people have is whether they will owe taxes on debt that has been discharged such as credit card debt or medical bills. The answer to that is no. Once that debt has been forgiven, it is gone because the taxpayer is insolvent or unable to pay his or her debts.
Remember, filing bankruptcy can help you regain financial stability; it cannot hurt you. You will be able to get a better handle on your bills you must continue to pay and stop your creditors from being able to harass you for the bills you cannot afford to pay.
