DuPage County Tax Lawyer Linda Bal Helps Bankruptcy Clients With Tax Problems
One of the many myths and misconceptions that have arisen since changes in bankruptcy law is that taxes cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.
While this assertion may be true some of the time, it is by no means true all of the time. Payroll taxes cannot be discharged in a personal bankruptcy, but income taxes can be eliminated under certain circumstances.
Linda Bal & Associates can help you if you have unpaid tax debt that you have owed for more than three years; filed tax returns on these debts; and the debt was assessed by the Internal Revenue Service at least 240 days before you filed for bankruptcy.
In addition, if you have tax liens on your property, you cannot expect a bankruptcy filing to discharge these liens. Our skilled lawyers look closely at the specifics of your situation and will help you determine whether bankruptcy is the proper course of action to relieve your IRS problems.
