Chapter 13 Taxes Dischargability Dealing With Taxes

Income taxes, property taxes, essentially all monies owed to governmental units must be paid in full in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Taxes are given a special designation of debt known as priority debts in Chapter 13 bankruptcy law. The advantage for many filers is that they are allowed to place their tax debt over a plan that can take place over 60 months. Not all taxes will be required to be paid in full as a priority debt.

Based on the time of filing or in the propriety of the filing the IRS may elect to designate some of the tax debt as general un-secured tax debt. This type of tax debt can be discharge through a Chapter 13 filing. Priory tax debt on the other hand must be paid in full over the time provided for in the plan.
