Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for your question. For over 35 years I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.
Even though your taxes were not dischargeable in a chapter 7, you can still file a chapter 13 BK now and list the taxes. Likewise, the taxes would be paid off through a court approved plan and you will be able to work and have money deposited without the fear that the IRS will seize your assets. Accordingly, you should consult with a BK attorney as most offer free consultations. Finally, if you do not want to go the BK route, you should meet with a CPA who is a former tax enrolled agent. He can file your tax returns and at the same time negotiate a repayment plan.
Finally, you cannot continue living underground. I wish I can offer more but your options are limited.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer ok or better so that I am paid for helping you.
I won't have time to look until sat or sun
