Can bankruptcy help if I owe back income taxes?
In a Chapter 13 case, you can pay off your taxes in your payment plan, normally without interest or penalties. There are also instances where the back taxes can be discharged. There are numerous tests that must be met in order for back taxes to be discharged, and they begin with the requirement that the taxes must be at least three years old.
