Understanding the Basics
Q: If I file for bankruptcy, could I wipe out that money that I owe to the IRS?
A: Yes! There are just a few requirements:
Income tax is dischargeable if:
- It’s over three years old from the date it was initially due to be filed (typically, this date falls April 15th of the following year). For example, if you’re looking at a 2015 tax return that you owe money on, it would have to be filed by April of 2016. It is currently March of 2020, meaning over 3 years have passed since that file date, so you’d be in luck! – your income tax debt for that year would be dischargeable, meaning we could help you wipe out the debt, just like a credit card.
- You filed taxes more than 2 years ago.
-and- there must be NO:
- Fraud or willful evasion.
- Assessments within 240 days.
- Tax liens.
