IRS and Tax Liens

Good news! In February the IRS announced new rules that limit the damage to your credit score if you get a lien filed against you for an IRS tax debt. It use to be that a tax lien would bring down your credit score as much as 200 points and it stayed on your record for 7 years. But now the feds will grant more taxpayers so-called lien withdrawals that remove the lien blemishes from their credit report as soon as they pay the bill or enroll in an approved payment plan. And, IRS can no longer file a lien unless your unpaid taxes total more than $10,000.

My Children's Belongings in Bankruptcy

When filing bankruptcy the law requires the debtor to list all of his or her assets in the paperwork/Schedule B filed with the court. The instructions for completing Schedule B requires the debtor to list all personal property of the debtor of whatever kind.

Bank Balances When Filing Bankruptcy

During a Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, all of the property in the debtor's possession is part of the bankruptcy estate. If there is estate property that is not exempt from collection, the bankruptcy trustee may require turn-over the property to pay creditors. Therefore, it is extremely important to accurately identify all of the debtor's property and its status prior to filing a bankruptcy case.

Military Service and Bankruptcy

Thank you to all of our serviceman and women! Congress has passed many laws attempting to give veterans a preferred status to meet special needs that result from service to our country. For example, wounded veterans receive health care after discharge and veterans often have hiring preference for jobs.
