In a chapter 13 bankruptcy in which there are tax liens and levies on properties, can there still be liquidation sales by government entities
Response 1: Unfortunately yes. The bankruptcy automatic stay provision 11 U.S.C. Section 362(a) does not apply to tax liens. See 11 U.S.C. Section 362(b)(4)
or the does the bankruptcy stay all such matters.
Response 2: No, bankruptcy does not stay all such matters
And if so who is responsible for making sure all entities who hold such liens are notified?
Response 3: See previous responses. The entities would be aware of the bankruptcy filing if their names and addresses are properly listed on the bankruptcy schedules.
