It's a common misconception that no tax can be discharged or forgiven in bankruptcy. The truth is with respect to state and federal income taxes, if certain conditions are satisfied, mainly that the tax return was timely filed either on April 15th, or under an extension by October 15th, and if more than 3 years have passed since the time that the tax return was due, the taxes are dischargeable as allowed in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.
If a debtor has tax problems on older tax years, an experienced Boulder bankruptcy attorney can review the situation with them, determine when the tax returns in question were filed, make sure enough time has passed since then, and if so, there is a good chance that old taxes can be discharged, enabling the debtor to get a fresh start.
