Tax payments

Posted on: 02nd Jan, 2012 02:31 am
My ex-wife has asked me to leave the home. I am cooperating with her and have found a new place to live. I am trying to assume the debts as per the divorce decree. Right now I have to take care of both the households as she does not have any income yet!! One of my major obligations is Federal Taxes. I want to file Chapter 7. Can I file a chapter 7 pro- se as soon as possible to stop the IRS tax payments and get on with my life?
Hi Joseph,

Taxes do not get discharged in your bankruptcy filing. You will be liable for paying it off in full though you receive a discharge from your other secured and unsecured debts. So, though you file Chapter 7, I will suggest you to keep on paying your taxes as per the payment plan given to you by the IRS.

Hello Joseph,

Taxes now provide revenue for a much broader range of services, from that smooth new highway you take to work to the ceramics program in your kid's public school. Taxes also fund parks, police, courts, libraries, health and welfare programs, and social services. These get paid for by you, the taxpayer — and when a new service is proposed, you can decide for yourself if you think it's worth the money coming out of your paycheck.

Sabrina, you made your statement in an articulate fashion, but can you please tell me what relevance it has to the issue that Joseph23 raised? Inasmuch as he's considering a bankruptcy and attempting to avoid the payment of taxes, it appears he isn't particularly concerned about having the opportunity to "decide for yourself if you think it's worth the money coming out of your paycheck."
