i filed a chapter 13 back in 2011 on a 60 month plan. the whole reason for having to file it was about $50k IRS debt that the interest and penalties were accruing so fast on it could never be paid. now im a few months from discharging it and i get a letter from the irs saying i still owe them $37k of that debt!! i looked at the plan and it states under IRS that 50k was scheduled, but only $13k is listed as claimed and that 13k has been paid 100%. so my questions are 1. what is the differance between scheduled and claimed 2. can the irs continue to claim debt that was part of a chapter 13 that was fully paid? isnt that the whole point of bankruptcy? to allow debtors to fully discharge their debts in 60 months and then start over?

In tn, if a child has filed chapter 7 bankruptcy, and she is

In tn, if a child has filed chapter 7 bankruptcy, and she is an only child of her only child parents, and has power of attourney (and one parent is going into assisted living), she had s credit union not allowing her to utilize her power of attourney, because of a recent chapter 7 with the same credit union. Does the bank have that power, due to cross collaterization, or is the employee misinformed?

The State of California FTB is still chasing me for money

The State of California FTB is still chasing me for money they say I owe from 1995 - 21 years ago. I filed bankruptcy twice in CA just to get rid of this and it still chases me. I haven't lived in CA since 2003 and on a couple of occassions and without warning they have taken money from a USAA savngs account. I've avoided having my name on any property and wondering if I did would they put a lien on my property? What if anything can be done to either make the FTB go away or should I even have my name on a piece of property?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TXJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No as I have my name on nothing right now but we are buying a house and were contemplating putting both our names on it until the latest FTB notice arrived a couple of days agoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I recently filed for Chapter 13 back in October of 2015. I recently received a letter from the IRS stating I am being audited for tax year 2014. I am having trouble finding some of the items they are requesting.Being that I am in an open 5 year repayment plan with my Chapter 13, can they ask for payment on items back in 2014?

I am in Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Arizona. We had just finished our confirmation hearing and it was extended to another date because we are still at an impasse with the IRS. My attorney is a very poor communicator. Should I change attorneys this late in the game? I have already paid my attorney around 20,000 dollars and he had submitted the amortization schedule to the IRS about 1 and a half months ago.

Chapter 11: My business owes a lot of payroll back taxes.

Chapter 11: My business owes a lot of payroll back taxes. Last year I purchased property for the business location in my wife's name (cash -no mortgage). The IRS agent has come calling and wants my wife to transfer it to the business so he can levy/ seize it. I was hoping to set-up a payment plan, but the IRS agent is not cooperating. My tax attorney tells me I really don't have a choice because the agent could force it through the courts. As a strategy, I am thinking of filing a business Chp.11 and close it -this would force a payment plan for the debt and possibly decrease the employer's portion -I realize the employee portion is still owed....All this would be in an effort to save the property -but then there is the trust fund portion on my personal side. Therefore, my question is can they still come after my business property from the personal side -even if I file Chp.11 for the business? I can't afford to file for both/ personal & business.

I am in chapter 7. IRs said we owed taxes from 2008 to 2012.

I am in chapter 7. IRs said we owed taxes from 2008 to 2012. Those are listed in our bankruptcy. We do not owe for 2013,14,,15 and all returns are in. In the meantime they sent a garnishment to our pay master(retired military ) and garnished anyway $1900. They referred us to a tax advocate name and number so they can give money back k. Should I file a motion w court saying it was seized improperly and it is to be returned or believe the advocate will do their job?
