1099-C In the Mail? How to Avoid Taxes on Cancelled Debt (via Credit.com)

Strategies to Recover After Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy might seem like the end of the road, but the stigma is not nearly as severe as it once was. In the past, it meant that the chances of getting approval on unsecured personal loans applications were practically nil, while even those lending firms who might be willing to take a chance would still be more likely to say no.

And the Oscar Goes To . . .

Did you catch the bankruptcy jokes in last night's Academy Awards telecast? I admit that I didn't until I saw the highlight reels this morning.

The Lengths to Which Debt Collectors Will Go

The Huffington Post chronicles this incredible story in which a debt collector allegedly called 911 on an 85 year old woman:

One Certainty in Life: Taxes

It's that time of year again! Your W-2s and 1099 forms have been sent out and have likely hit your mailbox or e-mail inbox recently. While preparing your taxes is no fun, especially if you think you are going to owe Uncle Sam this year, it is a good idea to get them filed before you file for bankruptcy. Why? You are required to turn over tax returns for your case to be prepared and for the trustee to review. If you drag your feet in getting them filed, you may just delay your case moving forward. In addition, you may be putting your tax refunds at risk of having to be turned over to the case trustee if you receive them after you file. If you are planning on filing bankruptcy soon and have questions about the timing of filing your taxes, please contact our office to schedule a free consultation, and we can help you make that decision. To best serve residents of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth counties, we have conveniently located offices in downtown Milwaukee and Kenosha. We are here to help!

I've had to use my credit cards recently, can I still file a bankruptcy?

There is no perfect time to file for bankruptcy. Ideally, you should wait to file at a point when you have not touched your credit cards for several months and your credit card charges over the past year have not taken a big jump. Further there is less chance that you will face any objection if you have made at least the minimum payment over the past 6 months or longer.
