Thanks for requesting me. I will do my best to provide you with clear and concise answers to your tax question based on the information you have provided.
I wish I had better news.
If the taxes owed to the IRS
were discharged in the bankruptcy but not paid in full, the IRS can maintain liens that were filed pre-bankruptcy petition. If this is the situation, you will be stuck waiting out the collection statute of limitations
(10 years from the date the tax was assessed + extension
during the bankruptcy) before the IRS will release that lien. You don't have to pay on the amount that was discharged, and the IRS will not pursue any other collections on that tax debt (no new liens, levies, or garnishments). However, the IRS can maintain the liens they already have.
There is not much that can be done at this point. If your financial picture is still on the poor side, you could pursue an offer in compromise or an installment agreement
to pay off the amount that the IRS has secured with the remaining lien. I would check the IRS account transcripts to figure out when the 10 year collection statute of limitations expires. If you can, wait out the collections statute of limitations.
