Are Your Debts to the IRS Eligible for a Bankruptcy Discharge?

If you ask the IRS, they will probably try to tell you that your tax debts cannot be discharged (wiped out) in bankruptcy. Of course, it is in their interest to tell you that. The truth is that, although discharging tax debts is difficult and rare, there are cases in which it is possible.

At Jamie L. Gingold, PC, (Formerly practicing with Gingold & Gingold LLC), our Atlanta tax debt relief lawyers — Ira D. Gingold, who has been a bankruptcy attorney since 1971 and Court-appointed Bankruptcy Trustee from 1971-2013, and Jamie L. Gingold, who has been practicing bankruptcy, business and real estate law since 2001 — have the experience to advise you on your specific situation and your options for your tax debts.

Understanding How Stale Tax Debts Are Handled in Bankruptcy

If your income tax debt is old enough and meets several other criteria, it may be considered “stale” tax debt. This means that it can be wiped out completely in Chapter 7 bankruptcy and wiped out or reduced in Chapter 13 bankruptcy, just like a credit card balance or a medical bill.

The rules for determining whether an IRS tax debt is stale are complex. Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys can tell you whether your tax debt is eligible for discharge.

Even if your tax debt cannot be discharged, a Chapter 13 repayment plan may give you the opportunity to repay it over three to five years. The payment plans offered by the IRS require you to pay future penalties and interest.

Whenever you send money to the IRS, they will always apply it to your oldest tax debt — which could be one that is eligible for discharge. The sooner you contact us to discuss your tax debt, the sooner we can make sure you are not making any unnecessary tax payments.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
