What would you like to do?
If you file bankruptcy chapter 13 and tax refund same month will you still get it?
How long should a person wait after a chapter 13 bankruptcy is dismissed to file income taxes for that year to guarantee to receive the refund?
You have to file your income taxes yearly regardless of whether you have filed for bankruptcy or not. Yes, IRS may garnish your refunds to pay toward your debts. If your bank…ruptcy is over however, you don't have to worry about that.
Yes. For 3 years. They do not take it all. You will get to keep your EIC and certain other credits that may be given that year. This is per my bankruptcy lawyer.
Filing Return While in Bankruptcy Yes, you still have to file your taxes as usual. Any refund will probably be appropriated by the trustee and treated as a nonexempt as…set, which will be used for repayment of creditors. Adding As indicated, this is one of your assets and must be disclosed to the creditors committee as something they can use to pay your debts. They will probably ask about it if you don't provide it. They've seen it many times before.
Answer A tax refund is considered income/asset belonging to the BK petitioner and is therefore subject to seizure for the repayment of debt. Whe…ther or not the refund can be included in the BK depends upon the time frame of the BK filing vs. the tax refund date and amount, the status of the refund (joint, subject to child support action, etc.) and so forth.
If you file a chapter 13 bankruptcy and include taxes years 2004 2005 can the IRS take your refund in 2007 for what you owe for tax year 2004?
como subio y bajo los precios en metro pcs desde ano 2004 al 2007 Ans I believe that the IRS maintains it's right to offset (that is clearly legal/proscribed) and what is b…eing done in something like this, even in cases of BK. Whether that right is absolutely always allowed may be another story...but unlikely it's worth fighting. The money won't go to you. (Otherwise, the refund would probably have to go to the court anyway as a pre petition asset). if a person files bankrupcy in 2009 can the IRS offset the refund
If you owe fed taxes and getting a refund in state taxes can the trustee in chapter 13 bankruptcy still take your refund?
Sure. The refund is only the amount you estimtaed as hence made as ocver paid, Had your estimate been more accurate or you had paid less then that amount, then the add…itional would have been avialable to pay creditors. You could have had more witheld, should that mean they should get less? Don't you think you should pay everyone as much as you can can o what you promised to paY? Its not exactly your refund....its money you put on deposit someplace else, and it should be used to pay those you promised it to.
Depending on some things, like when the tax was paid and when the BK was filed, the refund is like any other asset and available to creditors. The trustee or court would… take it and pay it to creditors according to their standing in the case.
Either way they will want a tax return filed before filing for chapter 13. If you are expecting a refund then they will seize it if it is after so to keep the money fi…le first and wait for the return, it will be considered as part of your income. If you owe it is better to know the amount before filing.
In Ohio chapter 13 bankruptcy trustee entitled what portion of a tax refund from the date of the bankruptcy filing?
Hello, In Ohio if you file chapter 13 the Trustee will not touch your Federal or State tax refunds. Unless you owe Federal and State tax debt. In that case the Federal and St…ate Government will take what ever you owe them. Happy Holidays ans I would disagree with the above. First, the State makes no difference, Bankruptcy las are Federal, handled by a Federal District BK Court. (Yes, some of these courts have certain allowances, that basically try to conform the handling to the convesntions of the area they work in). If the above were true, you could simply have 100% (or a high amount) of your earnings withheld, and hence have a large refund due...and say none of it is applicable to pay your debts? Nope. Tax refunds are from excess amounts you essentially had put in to a savings account with the Gov't with your name on it. Have the right amount withheld, by properly completing and filing your W-4 and you won't have a refund...and that extra money in your paycheck could be used to pay the debts you owe. The trustee won't hold back, in fact will give prioeity to paying, any tax you owe - but won't have you benefit by overpaying and asking for a refund. James _________________ I disagree with James. Why is it that all persons assume an income tax refund is due to an overpayment of federal taxes? I work for the state and have a set amount mandated to come out of my paycheck from PERS (public employee retirement system) which affects my adjusted gross, I pay nothing into Federal tax but I earn a tax credit for two children and being a full time student. In any case, a refund does not always indicate an overpayment...but NO, the IRS does not turn your refund over to the Chapter 13 in Ohio unless you owe back taxes.
Very likely...the refund is because you had more money than needed withheld from your paycheck and pu in (essentially) a savings account at the IRS to pay your eventual …liability. This money, earned and saved pre-filing, had you not had it put aside (or had you correctly estimated and completed the W-4 so the right amount was withheld), would have been available to pay the creditors. You know, you could literally have had 100% of your pay withheld....think it makes sense youc could get and keep it after filing BK? Of course, as BK is Federal Law, and in a FEDERAL court, the State makes no difference. And of course, the Court has some discretion in these things too.
The amount, no Will some part of it likely be used to pay your debts (because if you didn't have too much withheld that is what I'm sure you would have done with it… then), yes.
No! You must claim more dependants on your paycheck to avoid the trustee claiming your refund. 1500$ is the limit from Fed and State combined. Keep your refund below that amou…nt combined and you will be in the clear. I find it ironic that if you owe the irs any money the trustee does not help out with that but if your refund is good then the trustee will claim it. Hope this helps!
If received for last year yes. the one for next year, received after filing, no.
If you still owe federal income taxes, they will. But if they don't take it, the chapter 13 trustee gets the tax refund. You should have listed any income taxes that were dis…chargeable (due more that 3 years prior to the filing date).
Whether you are entitled to your tax refund will depend on what type of Chapter of bankruptcy you are filing and whether the bankruptcy exemptions can be used to protect the t…ax refund. If you are filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy then you can generally keep the refund if the available state bankruptcy exemptions provide protection for it. If you are in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy you are typically required to turn over the tax refunds during the life of the Chapter 13 case.
The tax refund goes into the bankruptcy estate. If your chapter 7 filing did not exempt the refund, the money will be used to pay the trustee and to pay your debts pro rata. T…hat is, each creditor gets an amount equal to the percentage the debt is to the total indebtedness. You are not likely to get anything back, but if all the debts are paid off 100 per cent and the trustee is not entitled to any more money, the balance will be paid to you. The trustee should have decided what s/he is going to do. If you have a lawyer, s/he should discuss it with the trustee. You can also talk to the trustee or your case manager. I doubt you will get any of the refund, but make sure to stay on top of the issue and get notices of any trustee motions regarding these funds.
