Chapter 7 is a court-supervised process whereby people are able to WIPE OUT:
Most Chapter 7 clients are able to keep their car and/or a house for which they are still making payments. Clients can also surrender and "walk away" from a car or house if they cannot afford to make the payments, and wipe out the liability on the loans. The vast majority of Chapter 7 bankruptcies in California allow people to protect their assets in full.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy allows you to create a court-supervised repayment plan to give yourself time to repay some or all of your debt. Your Chapter 13 options include:
Payment Plans: Assistance can be provided to obtain a reasonable payment plan on your back tax debt that still allows you to maintain your everyday expenses.
Offer In Compromise: You may qualify to settle your tax debt for pennies on the dollar. It is important that all factors are considered before pursuing this option.
Bankruptcy: Taxes CAN be discharged in bankruptcy if they meet all of the requirements. David J. Workman can analyze your back taxes to verify if this option will work for you.
