Our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience assisting individuals and businesses struggling with tax debt.

Turn to Weintraub & Selth, APC to get help resolving even your most serious tax debt issues.
What Types of Taxes Are Dischargeable?
The types of debt you can discharge vary depending on the chapter of bankruptcy you file. Taxes that can be discharged also vary depending on your particular situation. Not all debts are dischargeable and, when you contact Weintraub & Selth, APC, we will identify your dischargeable and nondischargeable debt as well as your secured and unsecured debt.
When you speak to our legal professionals, we will explain all of your options, including your dischargeable tax debt. These may include:
- Income taxes
- Tax returns that were due at least three years ago
- Tax returns filed at least two years ago
- Taxes that were assessed at least 240 days ago
If the IRS determines fraud or willful evasion, the tax debt, interest, and penalties will not be dischargeable. However, our attorneys may be able to provide evidence and argue that fraud and willful evasion did not take place.
Regardless of the reason, if you have been unable to pay your taxes, you may be subject to:
- Harassment by debt collectors
- Repossession of your vehicles and foreclosure or your home or other property
- Tax liens against your property
- Wage garnishment
These actions may only be taken after significant tax delinquency, but if you are in the midst of these kinds of challenges, our firm may be able to put an end to these actions.
