I was insolvent when I filed in 2006 but the bankruptcy wasnt completed until Feb of 2007. So, when was I insolvent for this issue? Does the insolvency mean my business or just my personal situation?
You should keep very good records of your calculations in case the IRS required you to "prove" the insolvency amount.
