I am in Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Arizona. We had just

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?

I have filed a Chapter 13 Case pro se. My plan is still

I have filed a Chapter 13 Case pro se. My plan is still unconfirmed. The IRS filed a secured Proof of Claim for $590K. My property I owe $475K and is worth $950K. I made a mistake on my schedules and did not include a second for $200K. The second was discharged through a Chapter 7 years ago. I no longer receive statements for this account. But the lien remains. I want to tell IRS that less of their claim is secured. When there is an IRS secured claim all must be paid through the plan? Most of the assessments were done in 2006, 2007. 2008. I was wondering if I can offer to pay them less and at an interest rate of 0.5%

I filed bankruptcy about four years ago because I had to

I filed bankruptcy about four years ago because I had to take care of my mother who had Alzheimer's. I kept the house, but I'm finding the bills overwhelming. I'm running two households now because I'm taking care of my brother who has FTD (frontotemporal dementia) and hydrocephalus (water on the brain). If I filed bankruptcy just to get rid of my house that has extreme damage from trees and water, would I get into trouble with the mortgage holder? My mortgage is about $340,000 and the house, on a good day, is worth about $90,000. As I've been told, it's also a famous historical house. Right now I hire people to go in and check on my brother on the days that I can't be there because he lives 125 miles away from me. I'm overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the bills for two households on top of paying home health care workers.
