Seeking Tax Debt Relief: Exploring Your Options

Eliminating tax debt is not an easy process, and it is not guaranteed in bankruptcy. The federal government has an incentive to make it difficult, as taxes are its main source of income. If you are looking to eliminate tax debt through bankruptcy, there are a few things you should know:

  • The taxes you are looking to discharge through bankruptcy must be of "due and owning" status for more than three years prior to filing.
  • Your taxes must be filed prior to filing bankruptcy.
  • A tax assessment by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) must be completed 240 days before filing bankruptcy. If you are unsure of whether your tax assessment has been completed, you can order a transcript through the IRS.

Our law firm assists clients with both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Because tax debts are not always dischargeable in
Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a debtor may wish to explore options through
Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In Chapter 13, tax debt can be reorganized and a repayment plan lasting three to five years is established. Our Phoenix bankruptcy attorneys can help determine which — if any — of your tax debts can be eliminated through Chapter 7 and whether a repayment plan through Chapter 13 is a more suitable option.

What our clients are saying…

Mr. Wright and his staff were amazing. They made a negative situation a lot better and turned it into a positive. Could really tell they care helping people and I will refer their Phoenix Bankruptcy Attorney firm to friends and family. Thanks again.
I called around looking for the right bankruptcy lawyer and came across Benjamin Wright. He personally called me for the consultation seeing how I live in Kingman AZ. He was very helpful from the start and his staff was very friendly and explained any questions I had, sorry for all the questions. I would definitely recommend Wright law offices, and I do!! Thanks for everything, you made what seemed like a hard thing to do simple!! You guys rock!!!
Great lawyer, he really helped my mother out of a jam. She was totally new to bankruptcy and he talked with us for about an hour and a half to make sure she wouldn’t be worried.
Ben is a kind and down to earth attorney. He worked around my busy schedule as a single mom (school, full-time job, and daycare pick up and drop off times). He explained absolutely everything to me and was good about e-mailing. I am writing this review as a THANK YOU.
I had a very positive experience with Attorney Wright. He or his staff returned my e-mails and calls promptly (even after business hours occasionally). His fees were reasonable. He was patient with me when I showed up in court missing an important document. He is aggressive, but fair and nice.
