Which Is Right for You: Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
The answer to that question will depend on your unique personal circumstances. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most of your unsecured debt is completely forgiven, but you may have to liquidate certain personal assets. In most instances, people will be able to keep their automobile and their primary residence.
If you have a large number of assets and are able to make regular monthly payments, you may want to consider filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your debts are combined into one manageable monthly payment that you must make for three to five years. At the end of that time, any remaining unsecured debt is discharged.
Solving Tax Problems Through Bankruptcy
In some situations, it is just not likely that working with the IRS on tax problems will lead to a favorable outcome. When you face an uphill battle with the IRS, it may be best to file for personal bankruptcy. This will force the IRS to workout your tax problems in a court of law. While tax debt cannot typically be discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it can be managed and eventually eliminated through Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
