There are certain categories of debt that cannot normally be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Among these is a liability for income taxes owed to the IRS or to the State, which can create significant difficulties for individuals who find they need protection under the Bankruptcy Code.
In certain circumstances, income taxes may be dischargeable, but it can be complicated to determine if your taxes may be discharged without a qualified bankruptcy attorney to assist you.
