IRS Tax Debt: Bankruptcy Could Be a Solution

Houston IRS Tax Debt Lawyers

Settle Debts with the IRS in Houston, TX

One of the most widespread myths about bankruptcy is that it cannot address any type of tax debt. In fact, people who are burdened with substantial, past-due debts to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the state of Texas or both should absolutely speak with a knowledgeable Houston bankruptcy lawyer about their overall financial situations and potential solutions.

Bankruptcy as a Solution to IRS Tax Debt

The IRS has sweeping powers to collect on tax obligations. Those powers extend to wage garnishment, tax levies on bank accounts and property seizures, but it may be possible for you to get protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Such actions can often be stopped or prevented through a timely, well-prepared Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing.

Attorneys at the Guzman Law Firm have helped many people deal effectively with complex tax debt problems. Our Houston bankruptcy lawyers are familiar with the highly technical rules that apply, and we will not make false promises or offer false hope.

Bankruptcy can be a solution to IRS tax debt in the following ways:

  • Many aggressive legal actions, such as wage garnishments, tax sales of property and bank levies, can be stopped immediately by filing a bankruptcy petition.
  • The benefits of paying taxes over a three- to five-year period as part of a Chapter 13 plan are often considerable. Depending on the type of tax you owe, it may enable you to avoid paying interest, for example.
  • In some cases, income tax obligations incurred many years ago can be eliminated through either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing.
