Can tax obligations be discharged during a bankruptcy?

When individuals file for bankruptcy, they usually believe that they cannot discharge their tax obligations. However, some of these tax obligations may be discharged in a bankruptcy filing.

In some cases, none of the tax obligations can be discharged. Certain obligations, though, may discharged depending on the type of tax owed, the age of the tax obligation, and whether the individual filed a tax return.

If you have questions about which taxes can be discharged, contact the Birmingham bankruptcy lawyers of Paula Greenway at (205) 324-4000.

What documents do individuals need for a bankruptcy filing?

When individuals consider filing for bankruptcy, their first step is often to visit a lawyer. Before this meeting, individuals should collect and prepare a number of documents.

These documents include a list of creditors, outstanding loans, any secured debt, and any lawsuits related to these debts. Individuals should also bring bank statements from the last 90 days and a list of monthly expenses, including clothing, housing, and transportation.
