State Income Tax Claims, Federal Tax Claims, and Real Estate Taxes must be included in a bankruptcy filing. Income tax claims that are less than three years old will usually be consolidated with other debts and paid over three to five years in a Chapter 13. Depending upon income and assets, income tax claims for returns that were filed more than three years before the bankruptcy can sometimes be reduced substantially in a Chapter 13 and eliminated completely in a Chapter 7.

Generally personal income taxes that are over three years old, and were assessed at least 240 days prior to bankruptcy filing, and voluntarily filed at least two years ago, can be included in a bankruptcy. However, most taxes aren't dischargeable. The trust fund portion of employment taxes is not dischargeable in bankruptcy; therefore, an Offer in Compromise is the only way to effectively eliminate the burden of the trust fund portion of employment taxes.
