Back taxes are typically not forgiven, but they can effectively be uncollectible. That comes about in a number of ways.
One of negotiating with IRS
to establish that the debts should be considered uncollectible. Depends on your income
A better way to think about it is your disability income might be exempt
. If the IRS can't attach the income, that is, if youthe disability pay is exempt, you get the same effect as debt forgiveness.
IRC 6334 exempts your military disability from IRS pursuit.
That means IRS can't attach the payment at the source. And, if they levy on your bank account after you get the $$, you should be able to get them to release their levy and return
any funds seized improperly.
So, while the debt is not forgiven (it will become uncollectible ten years after the tax was assessed), it is essentially forgiven.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
