Handling Tax and Student Loan Debt through Bankruptcy

You may be able to discharge older income taxes owed to the IRS. In order for income taxes to be "dischargeable" through bankruptcy, there are certain legal elements which must be met. Our bankruptcy attorneys are more than familiar with the legal elements need to discharge back income taxes.

While some older taxes may be dischargeable through bankruptcy, newer taxes and student loan debts, unfortunately, usually do not qualify as dischargeable government debts. The amount of debt applying to these two categories does not make a difference either, and bankruptcy will not eliminate these debts. However, bankruptcy can help you pay off your government student loans and taxes, by filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This will allow you to pay off your other debts, which will free up money for you to put toward your taxes owed and student loan debt. Depending on the age and type of tax, you may be able to discharge the debt through your bankruptcy filing, so it is important to speak with an attorney about how your tax debt may be affected.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to configure a payment plan for your outstanding debt, after you have paid for your regular monthly expenses, like your student loans and taxes. In essence, you cannot discharge newer taxes or student loans so finding creative solutions to pay them off is possible with the help of a skilled Charlotte lawyer. By working with an attorney at our firm, you can greatly increase your chances of realizing financial peace. We can help devise a good debt-paying strategy so that it will help you pay down your student loans and taxes in a more timely fashion.
