When you owe back taxes, the IRS adds fees and interest that make the problem even worse. It can seem like your tax debt will never be resolved and that you will be struggling financially for the rest of your life. In many cases, bankruptcy can help you stop the IRS calls and find a solution to your tax debt problems. There are extremely precise and complicated rules about whether taxes are eliminated or reduced under a bankruptcy filing, so it is important to work with an experienced Portland tax debt relief attorney to settle everything completely.

Can My Tax Debt Be Discharged?
Tax debt may be able to be reduced or discharged in bankruptcy if:
- Tax returns have been on file for more than two years prior
- Income taxes owed are over three years old
- No fraud or tax evasion was involved
- The IRS did not assess the taxes within the last 240 days
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to pay back your tax debt over a longer period and also eliminates penalties and freezes interest. This can help you stop your tax bill from growing so you can get ahead of it.
