Legal Help With Unpaid Taxes From Jacksonville Attorneys
Except in very limited circumstances, unpaid taxes are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. This means that you will still be obligated to pay back taxes even if you file a successful bankruptcy petition that discharges or reorganizes other debts.
Nevertheless, there are ways to lighten the load of unpaid taxes. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has recently stated that it will adopt a more lenient attitude toward repayment of back taxes, in recognition of the difficult financial circumstances many families are currently facing.
If You Owe Back Taxes, Face the Problem Head On
If you owe a high amount of back taxes, it is far better to face the problem rather than ignore it. The federal government has remarkable powers to collect unpaid debts. For example, the IRS can foreclose on any non-homestead real estate, garnish your wages, garnish business accounts and repossess personal property.
Rather than allow the IRS to invade your financial life, get legal help from a skilled attorney who can attempt to negotiate a reduction in your tax liability.
