Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.
Can you provide a little more information? You listed the taxes as a debt on Schedule E?
yes. The taxes are listed on schedule E
What is the issue then with the IRS?
any outstanding debt would be listed on the schedules
perhaps the IRS is looking for the discharge
once discharged, maybe some of your debt qualified for discharge, and they want to recalculate if some was discharged.
Generally, must be 3 years old when filed to discharge
The IRS sent me a notice for 2002, 2003 and 2008. All the tax years were listed. The IRS said they have the discharge letter but need the bankruptcy court to give me a letrer saying the taxes where discharged. All the taxes listed are three years old. Just wanted to know what to ask for when I go to the bk court office.
The IRS also stated that the letter from the IRS must state zero for the years owed.
the court doesn't usually do that, the IRS usually tells you if it met the dischargability rule
hmm, sounds new to me.
The court only has your discharge notice.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX hire a tax attorney, what i don't want to happen is that i have to pay

there you go
