Terry L. :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L. :

taxes are paid 100% if they are less than 3 years old when the bankruptcy is filed. If they were filed and more than 3 years old, they can be paid at the unsecured rate in the plan (10-100%)
