I am the owner of a small business and took out some
I am the owner of a small business and took out some business loans over the past ten years. The payments have become difficult to handle and I am looking for options. Apparently, I am the guarantor for the loans.On one loan, the statement I signed reads:'I, in my individual capacity (even though I may place a title or other designation next to my signature), jointly and severally unconditionally guarantee and promise to pay XXXXXXX all indebtedness of the Applicant at any time arising under or related to thise application and/or the Customer Agreement, as well as any extensions, inceases or renewals of that indetedness. As guarantor, I the Applicant or other guarantor; and (ii) the right to require Bank to procesd against Applicant or any other guarantor, to pursue any remedy in connection with the guaranteed indebtedness, or ot notify guarantor of any additional indebtedness incurred by the Applicant, or of any changes in the Applicant's financial condition.
I own a C-Corp in Illinois. The "assets" are 2 taxi
Hi,I own a C-Corp in Illinois.The "assets " are 2 taxi Medallions,valued at 120,000 combined and 1 car ,valued at $5000.But my medallions loan is $500,000,so Im totally "underwater".(the Medallions values decreased from $350,000Also,to note that Im a personal guarantor on the Medallion Loan of $500,000 .Questions:1)Can I file personal Bk chapter 7 anytime ,and include the Corp Debt in my personal Bk,since I'm a guarantor?(And they gave me a notice of intend to foreclose on the medallions,the will probably seek a judgement against me personally,since my company doesn't have any other assets,except for the car valued at $5000)?Or I would have to wait for the Lender to foreclose and then file C Corp Bankruptcy,and then my personal bankruptcy?Or ,when they obtain a Judgement (probably in my personal name),I can file personal Bk at that time,and avoid filing C Corp Bankruptcy?(I would prefer to keep my corporation open,as Im working as a Limousine driver and getting paid on my company name;I make about $4000 a month...)
I use 2 "personal" credit cards used solely for the company
I use 2 "personal" credit cards used solely for the company expenditures i do not put personal items on them. (Cards are in my name) My employees also use these same cards from my personally guaranteed account that i had issued to them for company expenses The cars are not in the company name. The cards get paid directly from the company accounts every two weeks or so to keep the balances low. Most of our expenses go on them. We have this written into our corporate structure and addressed in the minutes as to how reimbursement occurs.Also I have Leased a new auto 5 months ago, the lease is in my wife's name because i could not get the loan and the business didn't have the credit to do so either. Myself and my employees use it solely for business travel around the unite states and procurement of sales etc. The business pays for the lease on this car directly from the business account to the leasing company.Would any of this pose an issue to a trustee in a corporate bankruptcy OR if a company sueing us tried to pierce the corporate veil after a judgment was handed down to the business.
BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY ONLY: Can debts in an LLC
BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY ONLY: Can debts in an LLC partnership filing taxes as a Sub-S be discharged in a Chapter 7? If one of the two equal partners withdraws a large sum of money to pay his own separately owned company without authorization of the other partner and this potentially renders the LLC insolvent and unable to pay its payroll taxes and other third-party obligations, forcing the other partner to put the LLC into Ch 7, could the Trustee discharge that debt AND seek to recover it due to the partner who made the withdrawal preferring his own separate company over other creditors and is this likely? Lastly, can IRS force an Involuntary Ch 7 for unpaid payroll taxes?

I'm a business owner and signed a personal guarantee when I
I'm a business owner and signed a personal guarantee when I got a loan for my business. I bought a house a year ago, and recently paid it off. When the house was paid off, mine and my spouses name were on the deed. Recently, I had my name taken off the deed in hopes of protecting my home in case of a future lawsuit or inability to pay off my practice. There is a small chance I go bankrupt before I am able to pay back the loan. I have now read this could one day be considered fraud. I live in a state with an unlimited homestead, which doesn't take effect for 1215 days after the home was purchased. Did I make a mistake? Should I pay to have my name put back on the title?
