Ch 7 And Taxes
I had my chapt. 7 dismissed a few months ago and am now filing taxes (had an extension). Is this something that is indicated on filing a tax return or do I have to add a special form or anything to indicate my discharge?
No, I don't know of any place you would indicate this. Do you really mean dismissed (no discharge) or do you mean closed? The IRS has a special office for bankruptcy cases. The address for yours will appear on your matrix of creditor addresses (if you don't have a copy, you can get it at the court or from your lawyer). That said, the fact of your bankruptcy is on your IRS computer file. No problem. Unless the IRS has sent you a bill for taxes owed.., how do you know how much to pay them? Oh, let's see now. You voluntarily filled out one of their forms, telling them how much you think you might owe, and mailed it to them to figure out if you were correct.., is that what happened.??! I'd suggest you ask the IRS nicely to first define their meaning of "income" using their own Code book. Then don't pay anything until you receive their answer. It's worked for me for the past 22 years, and I'm still waiting for their answer.., and I'm not protesting anything..!!
